Explaining the terms
A Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) or a safe work procedure, is a part of a workplace safety plan. It is predominantly used to describe a document that gives specific instructions on how to safely perform a work related task, or operate a piece of plant or equipment. It is law to have work method statements, or similar, in place to advise employees and contractors on how to perform work related tasks safely
A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is one of the risk assessment tools used to identify and control workplace hazards. A JSA is a second tier risk assessment with the aim of preventing personal injury to a person, or their colleagues, and any other person passing or working adjacent, above or below. JSAs are also known as Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) and Task Hazard Analysis (THA).
A Job Safety and Environmental Analysis (JSEA) is the same as a JSA but also considers the risks to the environment and control measures to minimise these risks.
JSEAsy is an easy to use tool that enables manager, supervisors, foremen, task leaders or anyone to combine all of the above into one comprehensive document with ease.
