This online course explains what a job hazard analysis (JHA) is and offers guidelines to help you conduct your own step-by-step analysis. The course will also help you take the information from a JHA to write a safe job procedure (SJP) that can be used for training employees.
A hazard is the potential for harm. In practical terms, a hazard often is associated with a condition or activity that, if left uncontrolled, can result in an injury or illness.
A job hazard analysis is a technique that focuses on job tasks as a way to identify hazards before they occur. It focuses on the relationship between the worker, the task, the tools, and the work environment. Ideally, after you identify uncontrolled hazards, you will take steps to eliminate or reduce them to an acceptable risk level.
Many workers are injured and killed at the workplace every day. Safety and health can add value to your business, your job, and your life. You can help prevent workplace injuries and illnesses by looking at your workplace operations, establishing safe job procedures, and ensuring that all employees are trained properly.
Supervisors can use the findings of a job hazard analysis to eliminate and prevent hazards in their workplaces. This is likely to result in fewer worker injuries and illnesses; safer, more effective work methods; reduced workers' compensation costs; and increased worker productivity. The analysis can also be a valuable tool for training new employees in the steps required to perform their jobs safely.
This course introduces you to the job hazard analysis process and also touches on how you can use it as a valuable tool for training.
