These documents are offered to ASCC members for their use in developing task-specific Job Hazard Analysis. A Job Hazard Analysis template can be found below. This will assist you with the step-by-step process of identifying and eliminating the hazards associated with the tasks your workers perform. In addition, 13 sample JHAs have been developed on tasks common to our industry. These can be used as a guide in the development of your company's Job Hazard Analysis library.
How to Use the Job Hazard Analysis Template
Analyzing the hazards associated with day-to-day operations empowers your company to continuously improve worker performance and hazard awareness. Providing a safe work environment for your employees is a goal that is achievable and a responsibility we all must take seriously.
Pre-Planning Your JHA
Pre-planning a task is the first step towards doing that task safely. Planning the task (writing a JHA) should involve your project team. This might include Owners, Superintendents, Foremen, Project Managers, Safety Managers, Competent People, and industry experts. Most importantly, you need to involve the people who are competent, experienced, and able to recognize the hazards associated with the task, as well as recognizing the appropriate solutions to remove the hazards and protect the workers.
When necessary, the pre-planning process should take place at the job site. Once safety hazards and danger zones are identified you can develop your Job Hazard Analysis. First, list step-by-step the components of the work that you must perform to complete the task. In the next column, list the hazard associated with each step. Finally, in the third column describe how you will eliminate or control each hazard. Once the written JHA is completed, reviewed, and approved, the Foreman should review it with the crew. It's important to revise the JHA whenever conditions change including, but not limited to, crew, operational, or weather changes. To ensure that controls and safe practices are implemented, Supervisors and/or Foremen should observe the working methods and practices of their crew during the JHA operation. Recommendations for improvement should be communicated to the crew to maintain the highest level of safety.
