A job safety analysis (JSA) is a technique that focuses on job tasks as a way to identify hazards before they occur. It focuses on the relationship between the worker, the task, the tools, and the work environment. Ideally, after you identify uncontrolled hazards, you will take steps to eliminate or reduce them to an acceptable risk level.
A JSA has 3 main elements:
- Job Step (What are you going to do)
- Potential Hazard (What can go wrong or cause harm)
- Control measure (What are you going to do to make sure it doesn’t go wrong or cause harm)
Its primary purpose is to help supervisors and workers implement and monitor the control measures established at the workplace to ensure high risk work is carried out safely. An example of a JSA can be found here.
A JSA is also often referred to as a SWMS (Safe Work Method Statement)
