Job Hazard Analysis

A part of the work planning process, Workers and Work Leads are required to plan all work: determine the tasks that will be performed, consider the hazards, risks, and concerns associated with those tasks, and implement appropriate controls. The primary tool for work planning at the Line Management level is the Job Hazards Analysis (JHA).


The Job Hazards Analysis, or JHA, identifies the tasks that a Worker routinely performs, the hazards associated with those tasks, and the controls that minimize the hazards. When Workers have completed the JHA process they will know the hazards present in their work and the controls that they will use to protect themselves and others.
