Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment Project

 Be sure to read all of the instructions. There are two documents to be prepared and submitted. 1. Following steps 1-11 of the Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment Guide in the course textbook (pp. 171-174), develop a risk assessment for a serious workplace hazard with which you are familiar, or use Addendum D to Chapter 11 (pp. 202-206) to help you select a hazard. Evaluate the hazard and its associated risks, and then complete the Hazard Analysis and Risk Analysis Project form (click here to access this form).To complete the Initial Risk Assessment and Post Control Risk Assessment sections, use the following codes based on the Risk Assessment Matrix in Table 11.10 (p.180) of the textbook:SEVERITY: 1 – Catastrophic2 – Critical3 – Marginal4 – Negligible PROBABILITY (Likelihood of Occurrence):A – FrequentB – ProbableC – OccasionalD – RemoteE – Improbable RISK CODE:H – HighS – SeriousM – MediumL – LowAll sections of the form must be completed. Note that the “Post Control Risk Assessment Measures” section reflects the risk assessment AFTER applying the additional control measures.2. In a separate document of at least 500 words, explain the reasoning behind how you filled out each section of the form. Use references as needed to support the discussion. BOS 3651, Total Environmental Health and Safety Management3 Upload both the completed form and the discussion document. Be sure that the discussion document is in APA format with a title page and a reference page.*******************SEE ATTACHMENTS*******************Manuele, Fred A..

case study 1Review Case Study 11-3: Comp Time – Public Employers Offering Instead of Overtime Pay/U.S. Supreme Court, found on page 146 in the textbook. Christensen v. Harris County, 529 U.S. 576 (2000). The full decision is available at http://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/529/576/case.html Many fire departments have rules regarding the maximum compensation time that employees may accumulate and also how compensation time is paid at retirement or termination. Discuss the rules regarding compensation time accrual and use in your fire department or another department in your state and compare and contrast them to those at issue in Christensen. Be sure to address if and how the rules comply with the FLSA. Your response should be at least 300 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.Case Study 2: 50 pointsReview Case Study 12-1: Random Drug testing – No History of Drug Problems on Fire Department, found on page 152 in the textbook. Petersen v. City of Mesa, 83 P.3d 35 (Ariz. 2004), Arizona Supreme Court No. CV-03-0100-PR. To view the full decision copy and paste the following web address into a web browser: https://www.courtlistener.com/ariz/5rSY/petersen-v-city-of-mesa/ Though the Arizona Supreme Court found Mesa’s random drug testing to be outside the “closely guarded category of constitutionally permissible suspicionless searches”, a number of Appeals Court cases have upheld drug testing of firefighters in general, finding that that they do serve in “safety-sensitive” positions. Discuss whether your fire department or another fire department in your state has a random drug testing program. Briefly outline the provisions of the program. Also, explain if and how this program is addressed in your union’s collective bargaining agreement with your employer. FIR 4301, Political and Legal Foundations of Fire Protection 6 Your response should be at least 300 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Please submit your Case Study 1 and 2 responses as one Word document.

Read:Basic Principles of Medical Ethics(http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/medical-ethics-for-dummies-cheat-sheet.html)There are four basic principles of medical ethics. Each addresses a value that arises in interactions between providers and patients. The principles address the issue of fairness, honesty, and respect for fellow human beings.Autonomy: People have the right to control what happens to their bodies. This principle simply means that an informed, competent adult patient can refuse or accept treatments, drugs, and surgeries according to their wishes. People have the right to control what happens to their bodies because they are free and rational. And these decisions must be respected by everyone, even if those decisions aren’t in the best interest of the patient.Beneficence: “do only good”: All healthcare providers must strive to improve their patient’s health, to do the most good for the patient in every situation. But what is good for one patient may not be good for another, so each situation should be considered individually. And other values that might conflict with beneficence may need to be considered.Nonmaleficence: “First, do no harm” is the bedrock of medical ethics. In every situation, healthcare providers should avoid causing harm to their patients. You should also be aware of the doctrine of double effect, where a treatment intended for good unintentionally causes harm. This doctrine helps you make difficult decisions about whether actions with double effects can be undertaken.Justice: The fourth principle demands that you should try to be as fair as possible when offering treatments to patients and allocating scarce medical resources. You should be able to justify your actions in every situation.Discussion Questions requiring your response: Respond thoughtfully to the following questions and provide one reference (cited in APA format at end of your initial thread/post) that you have found that covers the topic of the right to have autonomy in healthcare decisions.  You must then respond and comment in a meaningful manner to the post of at least two (2) other students.Which of these principles do you believe is most critical to assuring quality of life and care for the recipients of healthcare services?  WHY?Provide one example of a situation where two or more of these principles may actually conflict with each other.  (It can be a healthcare scenario or just an idea/analysis you provide).  Based on your response, also provide the “best case scenario” resolution – from your perspective.  Be sure to use a scholarly source that supports your thought process, assuring your response is not just an uneducated opinion but one that has real merit.

What is a trophic level, and what is the 10% rule?

A trophic level is a level that designates organisms that share the same function in a food web in relation to primary sources of energy.

A trophic level is a level that designates organisms that share the same function in a in relation to primary sources of energy.
Trophic level one is comprised of primary producers, such as plants or algae that gain their energy from the sun.
Level two includes herbivores, those organisms that consume the primary producers.
Level three includes predators or omnivores, those organisms that consume the herbivores.
Level four includes those carnivores that eat other carnivores.
Level five includes apex predators, or those predators at the very top of the food chain without any organism preying on them.
Consumers generally convert an average of ten percent of the energy from their food source into their own biomass. This is called the ten percent law. The remaining ninety percent is lost or broken down in respiration. This limitation means that food chains or webs don’t often reach higher than level four or five.
