Project: Capstone Insurance provides a wide range of “commercial business” insurance products and risk management solutions for mid-sized and large businesses. Upon your graduation from Central, you are hired by Capstone Insurance. Your first task is to assess the safety performance of a potential client, a medium sized light truck and utility vehicle manufacturing company (North American Industrial Classification System Code [NAICS] 336112). This company has never had a good safety program, and has never filled out OSHA 300 logs. They just lost their insurance with another carrier. Your manager provides you with a list of accidents / incidents, which the company experienced in 2016. She assigns you the following tasks:

1. Compare the company’s recordable/DART rates to the national average rates.

a. You have to classify each of the accidents / incidents into one of the eight injury/incident categories:

i. Non-work related (NWR)

ii. First Aid (FA)

iii. Recordable – job transfer cases

iv. Recordable – restrictions cases

v. Recordable – other cases

vi. Days away cases

vii. Environmental incidents (EI)

viii. Others

b. Use the 29 CFR 1904 OSHA recordkeeping requirements (www.osha.gov) to identify the OSHA recordable injuries.
