An effective system for identifying, communicating and controlling work-related hazards is the foundation of any safety program.

Although there are a number of tools available to assist with this process, communication and control of work-related hazards, the Job Safety Analysis is considered one of the most effective. The JSA utilizes a logical, chronological approach to;

  • Break a task down into its individual steps,

  • Identify the hazards associated with each step, and

  • Develop appropriate controls for each hazard.

 

Training Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and describe a broad array of work-related hazards, including working at heights, ergonomic, chemical and biological, ergonomic, etc.

  • Understand and apply hazard control options, including engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment.

  • Understand the opportunities to integrate JSA information into Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s),

  • Accident Investigations, Workplace Inspections, etc.

  • Identify the basic steps involved in conducting a job safety analysis.

 

Target Audience:
  • Supervisors and Managers,

  • Joint Health and Safety Committee Members,

  • Ergonomists

  • Safety Managers, Coordinators and other technical resources.

 

Course Length and Options:

The half-day (4-hour) version of this program covers the theoretical side of the Job Safety Analysis process, allowing participants to use the information and templates on their own after the training session. In the full-day (8-hour) training session, participants will be able to practice and apply the Job Safety Analysis process in a team format (i.e. hands-on application of information and team review of JSA findings). This session can also be presented in a 2-day or 3-day format, allowing for additional time to apply the JSA process to workplace tasks under the guidance and direction of a STACS associate.
