Why do we do Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) and Job Safety Analysis (JSA)?
Before working on a task or job, it is always best to find out the safest and most practical way of completing it. By being aware of potential hazards or bumps in doing the job, it will not only prevent any major issue/injury from occurring but will also improve work performance and safety.
SEE Forge’s easy to use Job Safety Analysis (JSA) and Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Management Tools will help you and your employees identify potential safety hazards in the workplace, measure them then eliminate or control them. The JSA/JHA process is suitable for any job type or job task and does not require a heavy amount of time to complete.
In a Job Safety or Hazard Analysis, every step of the job must identify potential hazards and find the safest way to do the job.
The 5 Basic Steps When Conducting a JSA/JHA:
- Select the job to be analyzed: Gather the people involved in the activity and with the use of the JSA/JHA worksheet, break the job down into a sequence of steps by filling in the task step, one by one.
- Identify the potential hazards: Next to each of the tasks using the JSA/JHA worksheet, fill in the potential problems/injuries that can occur when undergoing the task or for those involved in it.
- Document the control measures: Write down the measures of each identified hazard that will minimize or prevent the risk to those involved.
- Identify who is responsible: Write down the name of who is responsible for implementing the measures.
- Monitor and Review: Ensure that the task is being supervised in order to make sure that the process of each task is being followed. When the process has been completed, review back to the worksheet and write down whether it was effective or not. If failed, measure the risk level and list down a proposed procedure that can improve or successfully prevent the risk.

The JSA/JHA forms should be completed and monitored by all those responsible and involved in the tasks in order to review changes such as new potential hazards or new control measures once implementing assigned tasks.
