Learn Effective Techniques of Writing and Documenting Your Job Hazard Analysis (JHA).

Contractors require job hazard analyses (JHAs) before they begin working on a project in order to reduce errors, mistakes or accidents. By requiring the contractor to submit a JHA for the planned work, the owner or general contractor has a means of evaluating contractor’s safety preparations. Additionally, the JHA can determine and specify if additional safety training, licensing or certification is required; it may also specify that all employees working on a project get a minimum level of safety training. When used properly, the JHA can be a very effective tool in assuring safety work performance.

This program by expert speaker John J. Meola, CSP, ARM, offers a tutorial on how to write an effective and properly sequenced JHA. Useful for many managers and supervisors, John’s presentation will also explain the intent of the JHA process and how you can structure your JHA to address your clients’ concerns.

Session Highlights

  • Do’s and don’ts of writing a JHA
  • Basic and intermediate techniques of writing and documenting your JHA
  • Technical safety topics applicable in a JHA such as fall protection, confined space entry, Lock Out Tag Out, Hazard Communication, etc.
  • The importance of making the JHA a stand-alone document, such as by including pictures, safety data sheets, copies of licenses, training records, etc.
  • The most common mistakes made when writing a JHA
  • Safety and accident prevention measures that are not found in the OSHA playbook
  • Role of safety-related documentation and supporting records that are ancillary to the JHA process
  • What to look for and how to translate the physical elements of the job into safety language

Learning Objectives

  • Ability to write a moderately complex JHA and have it pass muster on the first submittal
  • Review the three primary parts of the JHA and explain the relevance of each to the process
  • Analyze the risk matrix
  • Understand ‘before and after’ grading system and intent of the exercise
  • Learn about ‘risk tolerance’ and risk mitigation to the extent they are addressed by the JHA process
  • Address other codes and standards such as MSHA, ANSI, ISO and US ACE EM-385 and how they all basically want to achieve the same thing (safety) but each one these parties has its own unique terminology
  • Know the importance of the JHA as a ‘Defensive Document’ in the realm of your general liability insurance claim defenses
