Your discussion is on the subject of “the value of Safety and Human Life”. By value, I mean, monetary ($) value. If an employee were killed at work today, how would we determine the value of such a loss? Is Safety a “Waste”?In your opinion is it reasonable to base “the value of a human life” based on “status” or position held in society? In a typical workplace, will all employees have equal value? from the company president to the cleaner?
2- For this discussion topic, I want you to provide the specific OSHA standard that was violated for each of the two violations described. I have provided you an example:

- Standard 1:
Violation 2: “Forklift operator was not trained or certified in the operations of the forklift.”
