- A job safety analysis (JSA) is a process where each step in a job or process is determined, hazards identified in each step, and corrective or protective measures determined to counter the hazards.
- The Job Safety Analysis will be developed by the department supervisor or his/her designee. EHS / HW Officer is available for consultation.
- A standard form will be used to record the information (Section 7 – Forms).
- Completed JSA's will be shared with affected employees
- Safety rules and procedures will be revised to accommodate the new plan as necessary. Job Safety Analysis for specific job tasks can be obtained from your immediate supervisor.
- Job Safety Analyses will be maintained in the department creating them and will be readily accessible to the employees.
- Job Safety Analyses will be reevaluated on an annual basis or any time negative trends are discovered in accident/injury analysis, and upon new equipment/procedures being introduced in the workplace.
