A Job Hazard Analysis, (JHA), also called a Job Safety Analysis, is a proven analytical tool that examines the relationship between the worker, the task, the tools, and the work environment. Ideally, after uncontrolled hazards are identified, a city will take steps to eliminate or reduce the hazards to an acceptable risk level.
Understand how to conduct, review and document a job hazard analysis. Use this proactive tool to establish proper work procedures and address on-the-job hazards before an injury or costly claim occurs.
