Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is a vital part of Safe Job Planning. We’ve all heard the adage “Fail to plan; plan to fail”. Successful businesses plan and communicate how work tasks will be accomplished before work starts. Performing a JSA identifies hazards associated with the work and helps decision makers decide what controls will be implemented in order to protect the health and safety of the workers and accomplish the work tasks as efficiently as possible. Performing a JSA creates discussion. It helps employers walk through the steps of a job and make plans for implementation of controls including: training, equipment availability, safe work procedures and supervision. This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to perform a comprehensive JSA that takes into account the hazards of the job, the likelihood and severity of potential injury, and appropriate controls to eliminate or mitigate the hazards.

By the end of this course participants will be able to:
Identify when a written JSA would be appropriate
Describe the key elements of a JSA
Determine risk factors using a likelihood/severity matrix
Identify appropriate controls to mitigate or eliminate risk factors
Explain the hazard pathway
Explain the hierarchy of controls
Explain the classification of hazards and the primary methods of control
Identify Hazardous energies and explain primary control methods
Identify routes of entry for chemically toxic and biological agents and explain primary control methods.
Describe the elements of a Job Safety Analysis and discuss how it can be used to develop a Safe Work Plan that Recognizes the hazards, Accesses the hazards, Controls or eliminates the hazards and Evaluates the results (RACE).
