Bricklaying Job Safety Analysis (JSA)
People often ask, "Can I have a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) for Brick Work?" "A document that covers everything?" The answer is not really. Well you could create a document that covers most areas of brick work, but it would be hundreds of pages long and would contain more items that did not apply to your project, than items that did.
A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) needs to document step by step how you are going to do a particular job. Not all jobs are the same! Are you going to install bricks to a single story or a 2 story house. Brick or blocks. Are you going to cut your bricks with an angle grinder or a petrol powered brick saw?
The steps in undertaking each of these tasks are very different. Not only are the steps different, but the potential hazards and the hazard control measures are very different as well.
The JSEAsy software builds your site specific SWMS for your electrical job by adding templates of the steps you are going to take, in the order in which you are going to take them.
The JSEAsy software comes preloaded with hundreds of templates (job steps).
Below is an example of templates you may insert into your site specific JSA for bricklaying to a new residence
When you insert a template it automatically brings with it:
When you buy or rent the JSEAsy software, not only to get all of the templates specifically for brick work but you also get all of the templates for all of the other trades as well. Bricklayers don't just lay bricks! You will also benefit from many of scaffolding templates there are multiple templates under Windows and Doors that will be of use. You may benefit from many other industry and trade templates if you are doing a refit such as: Demolition, civil works and excavations, Ceilings and Wall Linings, Painting, etc.
There is an example of a JSA generated from the system available for download.
The Main points in this example JSA are templates that have been inserted into the “Site Specific SWMS” to build it.
See JSEAsy features and demonstrations for video demonstrations on how this works (They run for around 4 minutes each)
When you buy or Rent JSEAsy v4.2 you have access to all of the SWMS templates, for all trades and industries.
