2 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Written Investigation Report
Task Description

The purpose of this assignment is to enable you the opportunity to conduct an investigation into a particular accident type which is of interest to you. The accident type can be any cluster of accidents (for example motorcycle accidents, domestic swimming pool drownings, aircraft crashes or aviation ground occurrences, train derailments, accidental patient deaths in hospital, industry accidents etc.)

By the end of week 4, you should have selected an accident type to investigate, have formulated a research question around the accident type, and from the research question formulated a hypothesis to test. Your accident type, research question and hypothesis must be approved by your lecturer.

In this assignment (assignment 2) you should complete your analysis of the available data and information regarding your chosen accident type, of which you will use to inform an identified stakeholder of your findings and recommendations in assignment 3.

Your report must include, and evidence your ability, to:

  • Critically interpret, analyse and evaluate accident reports, data and information from a variety of sources in order to establish some risk and causal factors which can be used to inform future mitigation and prevention strategies.
  • Prepare some findings.
  • Prepare some recommendations for improvement.

Your report can be structured with similar characteristics to the one available at http://www.atsb.gov.au/media/2226870/ar/2010044.pdf, or similar format.

Assessment Title Communication Plan
Task Description

The purpose of this assignment (assignment three) is for you to use your accident report, in particular the findings and recommendations to create a comprehensive communication plan to be delivered to an identified stakeholder.
