    Speaker Notes:

    OSHA case studies present detailed information about an occupational safety or health problem or issue as it pertains to an individual or group and how it is effectively remedied for them. The study provides an in-depth description of the problem or issue being evaluated and its solution. This information could include the circumstances under which it is used, the characteristics of the people involved in it, and the nature of the community in which it is located. It could also involve interpreting the meaning of demographic, descriptive and statistical data such as cultural norms, ingrained attitudes, motives, and injury and illness rates. A case study is generally 2000 words long and may contain charts or graphics and provides citations to facts, rules or principles asserted in the case study.

    A success story is a shorter version of case study. A success story specifically details a safety and health process or program that an organization implemented in the workplace that led to improved safety and health. It may include statistical information or measurable results that demonstrate the impact of the process or program. OSHA has developed case studies on several topics, including ergonomics, Hispanic outreach, and small businesses.
