Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) OR Job Safety Analysis (JSA)

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.

Safety & Risk Management encourages supervisors and employees to work together to  analyze the tasks they do in order to recognize the potential hazards and take the necessary steps to eliminate or reduce them.
