Job Hazards Analysis

Job Hazard Analysis is a key component in any occupational safety and health program. A successful occupational health program will control, mitigate and/or eliminate recognized workplace hazards to attain an acceptable level of risk and promote the wellness of workers. Optimum occupational safety and health results from a continuous proactive process of anticipating, identifying, designing, implementing, and evaluating risk-reduction practices.

Job Hazard Analysis is a method for studying and identifying hazards associated with work processes. An effective job hazard analysis will:

  • Identify hazards and potential injuries associated with each step of the work processes
  • Develop solutions that will eliminate, minimize, and prevent hazards

If your department would like to request a Job Hazard Analysis for a specific employee, work process or task please contact EHS.
