The research component is a standard research paper. This research paper should be conceptual, not empirical (i.e., it should not involve the statistical analysis of data). Detail follows:
PART 1: Topic and introduction (600 words)consists of:
Working title of the paper (this paper seeks to aIDress a business problem which is health and safety in the workplace as a function or activity of human resource management)
Importance of conducting research in health and safety in the workplace and how it will benefit both the company and the employee (roughly 300 words)
General background about the health and safety in the workplace and how it is an important part of human resource management, for the uninitiated reader (roughly 300 words)
PART 2: Literature review and starting bibliography (1,000 words)consists of: This part is an introductory part for the following part which is the main thesis (PART 3). It should focus on the topic of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) as a complex area which interacts widely with a broader spectrum of Human Resource Management and its concerns. Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) policies express an organizations commitment to a safe and healthy workplace. OSH policies set the context for practices and behavior aimed at preventing injury and disease and promoting good health. OSH policies are also the framework for dealing with health and safety issues that do arise in the workplace and they help organizations comply with legal requirements.

PART 3: Main thesis (1,200 words) Employers and employees share responsibilities for making sure work environments are healthy and safe. This part is a continuous part of the literature review in which you have to elaborate more about the subtopics of occupational health and safety. It should focus on why employers are responsible for ensuring a healthy and safe work environment, and why employees are required to follow instructions and any legal requirements regarding health and safety rules. This part can talk about several organizations specialized or known for their safety measures. These organizations can be international like Occupational Safety and Health Administration in America as a global example, and compare it to a local organization like Dubai Dry docks. We need to compare between these 2 organizations in terms of how each organization intends to provide healthy and safe systems of work.
