Analyze workplace procedures. Prevent hazards. Reduce injuries.
A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) integrates accepted safety and health principles and practices into a specific task or job function. In a JSA, potential hazards are identified at each step of a job and recommendations are made for the safest way to carry out the task.
Adhering to this type of formal process is crucial in preventing employees from settling into a routine and becoming complacent, which can be deadly at work. Also, a JSA builds safety awareness by possibly shedding new light on workplace hazards. Additional purposes of a JSA include:
- Ensuring the availability of appropriate Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
- Helping to develop an Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP)
- Orienting and training new hires
- Investigating near misses and other incidents
In this new safety training course from LMS Courses, you will learn the steps involved in creating a JSA, the various responsibilities of both managers and supervisors, and the types of jobs and tasks analyzed in a JSA.
