Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Introduction to JHA - Oregon OSHA

Many workers are injured and killed at the workplace every day. Practicing safety and health can add value to your business, your job, and your life. You can help prevent workplace injuries and illnesses by analyzing the various jobs to write safe job procedures.

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.
