One way to prevent workplace injuries is to establish proper job procedures and train all employees in safer and more efficient work methods. A Job Hazard Analysis is a great way to accomplish this.
This Introduction to Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) training will introduce the student to the Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) process and how to create one.
NOTE - Some employers prefer to use the term "JSA", or "Job Safety Analysis," instead of JHA. Basically, the terms are interchangeable. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses the term "AHA," which stands for Activity Hazards Analysis.

- State the steps involved in creating a Job Hazard Analysis; and

This training should be combined with company specific training on the employer's Job Hazard Analysis process.
When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job.
Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.
The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
