SAC Revision
- SAC is 50 minutes and you are allowed a one page A4 cheat
sheet. Remote students can access these SACS from Mr Sarup
in Dimboola or Mr Bandel in Nhill.
- Hopetoun students will sit the SAC on Wed 22nd Feb. Nhill will
sit it on Thursday 23rd and Dimboola can be either day.
- You need to be confident that you can meet the key
knowledge and skills set out at the start of the SAC (these are
on the next slide).
- In addition to chapter one you also need to know the concept
of ethical and socially responsible management (ESM) is. You
will find more information about ESM in this powerpoint as
well as on page 48.
What is ESM
Ethical and Socially Responsible Management relates to the
moral standards and consideration for the broader community
by large-scale organisations through their activities and actions.
While all modern large-scale organisations are increasingly
confronted with this issue, it has been of particular relevance to
the Iluka company particularly in relation to road damage
caused by trucks.
In 2008, Iluka commissioned an Environment Effects Statement.
This statement states that, “the additional traffic generated by
each of the mines is estimated at around 200 trips per day (twoway) of which 40% are trips by haul trucks”.
Questions to students…
What impact did these trucks have on the broader communities
around the Wimmera/Mallee region?
How well was this impact communicated to the communities
prior to the increasing the number of trucks on the highways?
You SAC question will expect that you can explain the ESM
concept, provide an overview of a business with an ESM issue
and be able to discuss the issue and its relevance to
stakeholders.
ESM – Iluka example
How to answer this question…
Explain what an ESM is.
Iluka – describe the company. You will find information on their
website.
