Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is one of the most effective ways in recognizing hazards associated with jobs. JHA provides a systematic mechanism to determine hazards that can be encountered in a job step, thereby leading to the effective control of the aforementioned hazard making jobs safer and workers more effective. A comprehensive JHA will allow organizations map out their workplace hazards making sure that they are not only addressed but properly communicated.
One of the most effective, if not the best way of starting your proactive safety program is to launch, develop and sustain a Job Hazard Analysis. If properly performed, JHA can provide management with all recognized safety, health and ergonomic hazards associated with the performance of a particular hazardous task. In addition, appropriate and effective hazard controls to eliminate or minimize the hazards in all job steps can be developed before a job is performed. In doing so, management can attain effective control of human errors, which accounted for the causes of 98% of all industrial accidents.
