This argument also relies on the idea that companies solely use financial sense in analyzing improving the work environment. This is not the case. Companies look at other considerations such as the negative social ramifications of high on-job injuries. For example, Toyota spends large amounts of money improving its environment because while its goal is to be profitable, it also prides itself on high employee morale and an almost perfectly safe work environment. However, Toyota finds that it can do both, as by improving employee health and employee relations they are guaranteed a more motivated staff, and hence a more efficient staff this guarantees more money for the business as well as more safety for the employees.
GRE sets two writing tasks (Analyze an Issue, and Analyze an Argument) collectively called the Analytical Writing Section (or Analytical Writing Measure). The tasks are designed to test critical thinking and analytical writing skills. The essays come first on the test - 85 minutes for the issue and 85 minutes for the argument.
7) The argumentative essay has three approaches. Choose the one that you find most effective for your argument. Do you find it better to &ldquo sell&rdquo your argument first and then present the counter arguments and refute them? Or do you prefer to save the best for last?
A score of 9 out of the potential 6 is considered �competent�. While it is nice to be competent, it is worth striving to be �good� or very good�, so put in a little extra effort on this section.
Your argument is evaluated by college and university faculty members from various subject matter areas, who will look at the overall quality of your thinking and writing.
The second task on the GRE is the analysis of an argument , which tests your ability to find flaws in apparently logical arguments. It does help if you have a basic familiarity with the terms of logic, so that you can successfully identify the premises and assumptions on which a conclusion rests. Here the mark you obtain is directly linked to your ability to evaluate the logic of the given argument and address the specific instructions you are given. With a little training and practice, this task is actually easier than the issue.
In conclusion, while at first it may seem to make financial sense to improve the safety of the work environment sometimes it truly does not make financial sense. Furthermore, financial sense may not be the only issue a company faces. Other types of analyses must be made such as the social ramifications of an unsafe work environment and the overall ability of a company to improve that environment (., coal mine). Before any decision is made, all these things must be considered, not simply the reduction of payroll expenses.

Finally one must understand that not all work environments can be made safer. For example, in the case of coal mining, a company only has limited ways of making the work environment safe. While companies may be able to ensure some safety precautions, they may not be able to provide all the safety measures necessary. In other words, a mining company has limited ability to control the air quality within a coal mine and therefore it cannot control the risk of employees getting blacklung. In other words, regardless of the intent of the company, some jobs are simply dangerous in nature.
