As per the Merriam- Webster dictionary, a case study is defined as â€œa published report about a person, group, or situation that has been studied over time; also: a situation in real life that can be looked at or studied to learn about somethingâ€. A case study includes an in-depth analysis of the problem and attempts to discuss the solutions to the problem. As an occupational safety and health officer, you should be familiar with the concept of writing a case study. There are several examples of case studies given on the OSHA website for reference purposes.
Each case study should be minimum three pages long and should not exceed 10 pages. The page limit does not include the title page or bibliography. All text should be in 12-point font, double-spaced and with 1 inch page margins. Points will be deducted for spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors. Run a spelling and grammar check before you submit your case study. Avoid common criticisms like vague writing, weak rationale, unfocussed and lacking originality. The case study should follow the structure given below.
Structure of the case study
1. Title page
The contents of the title page should be centered and should contain the following
a. Title of the case: – Title should be brief and specific to the case
b. Authorâ€™s name and affiliation
c. Course title and date of submission
2. Abstract (250 words)
The abstract should provide a concise overview of your case study. It should be written as
a single paragraph containing 250 words. It should outline the individual or organization
under study, the problem addressed, the questions raised and the solutions recommended.
It is best to write the abstract in the end since it merely needs rewording of information
that is already presented in the body of the case study.
3. Body of the case study
This section should detail the background, the safety problem(s), your research
findings and solutions or recommendations to the problem/incident discussed. After
reading the body of the case study, the reader should not only have an understanding of
what your conclusions, but they should also be able to sense your passion for the topic
and its possible outcomes. Therefore, this should be well thought and written.
4. Literature Cited
This section is not counted in your page limit. Be sure to cite the works (papers,
textbooks, or any other publications) that you have referred in your case study. Please
follow the American Psychological Association (APA) reference style. Reference to APA
style can be found at http://www.apastyle.org/learn/quick-guide-on-refer…
And I have already done my abstract part, please just add this abstract to case study, you dont have to write a new abstract.
