Dear All,

I am currently undertaken my Bsc Health and safety Risk Management degree and have been tasked with writing a 2000 word essay on policies, we have been asked to source 2 academic writing essays on this subject but i am struggling to find any.

Can anyone assist.

Additionally i am also looking for some assistance or examples on an academic writing excutive summary for any essay anyone may have.

Thanks in advance to anyone who may be able to assist.

Presumably you are not limited to just 'H&S', as policy writing is a broad subject, so there should be plenty of academic papers etc. about but maybe not directly H&S. 

Also I assume you have 'policy' clearly defined. It is common and confusing in the H&S world to find internal processes, systems or strategies, referred to as 'policies'. Anything from a sheet of A4 to a manual of hundreds of pages can be called 'policy'. It should be short, on the basis that it is mainly agreeing with the HSWA principles anyway, adding how (organisationally) the objectives will be implemented.

In my book, 'policy' is goal-based and a high level ambition, set by the organisation, via execs, although as a SP I may draft a couple of examples for them to start them off. But they own policy, not me.

Don't overlook the HSE research report library, alhough nothing springs to mind.

If you are working through a university they should have subject specific librarians who can help advise on these sort of issues.  They will know what is out there and how to present it.
