Job Hazard Analysis
In Job Hazard Analysis, you'll learn ...
- What is a Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) and why it's important
- What jobs are appropriate for a JHA
- How to identify and correct workplace hazards
Workplace safety can be improved when engineers, supervisors and employees participate in the development of safe procedures in any operations, maintenance and construction activities. A Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is a technique that focuses on the hazards inherent in some job tasks, before the job begins. The goal is to identify risks sooner rather than after-the-fact.
Development of a JHA is a multi-step process that breaks down any job into a series of tasks. The hazards associated with each task can then be identified and mitigated. The JHA is both a process and a product.
Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained
This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
