Enhancing Job Hazard Analysis Through Risk Management and Behavioral Integration

Traditional Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) helps to identify the job as a whole and methods of defining the steps and then the associated tasks, identifying existing and potential hazards and consequences of exposures to the associated tasks, and then developing safe operating procedures to help the user recognize associated hazards.

Recently a new and enhanced JHA version was released that incorporates risk analyses in order to focus on at-risk events within the JHA. This method enables the end user to increase the effectiveness of the traditional JHA, thus reducing workplace errors.

Join us for a two-hour audio conference as we examine this new process. Sample JHAs will be supplied to describe how an enhanced JHA can be developed. At the end of the presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions specific to your situation. This is an event you can't afford to miss!

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the Benefits of the JHA.
  • Distinguish the between the terms "job," "step," and "task."
  • Implement a method for quantifying hazards and risk in the workplace.
  • Identify the difference between the traditional JHA and the enhanced JHA.
