Question;The risk management system for loss control that is being evaluated is for a chemistry lab safety shower call back alarm. The equipment and its installation are estimated to cost $400,000. The useful life is 14 years without any salvage value at the end of the useful life. Insurance premium reductions of $50,000 per year have been negotiated.
