by Smart, Angela N.

Abstract (Summary)
This paper will look at a case study based on the implementation of a management accountability program for safety at Company XYZ. It will provide the layout of the program along with tools used and the measurement of success. This paper will investigate the effectiveness of the program. A literature review will discuss the aspects of setting responsibility and accountability in the workplace, and the need to do so. Elements of success~l accountability programs will be identified according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The literature review will then lead into consequences tied to the achievement or lack thereof in the accountability program, with focus on the impact of positive and negative impacts in the workplace. This section will conclude with tying achievement in safety to performance reviews. The outline of the management accountability program for safety at Company XYZ will follow. All aspects of the program will be identified and discussed. The results of 6 months worth of data will be explored as total achievement by Company XYZ as a whole. The paper will conclude with recommendations for future studies concerning accountability programs for safety. Tools utilized by Company XYZ to carry out the accountability program for safety will be provided in appendices. Depending on success of the program and applicability, those tools can be used as a base for implementation at other companies.
