Job Safety Analysis

The Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is also commonly known as a Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) or a Task Hazard Analysis (THA). When done properly they will identify which workplace hazards exist with a ‘possible or greater’ likelihood of occurring. Once identified, steps can be taken to reduce the risk associated with the hazards listed in the analysis. This is required to get the hazards to a point where it is acceptable and in line with the principles of ALARP (As Low as Reasonably Practicable) using a standard hierarchy of control.
