Job Hazard Analysis

A Job Safety Analysis can serve as an invaluable tool to all persons associated with the task. A Job Safety Analysis takes a specific job that a person may perform, breaks the job down into manageable steps, and identifies any and all hazards associated with each step. The process is usually jointly conducted by the worker who is doing the task and by the supervisor responsible for overseeing the task.

ORM has provided a template for a Job Safety Analysis. This template will greatly assist individual supervisors in identifying and assessing a particular job or task for hazards, either current or potential. Once the template is completed, appropriate hazard controls can be implemented.
