What's in the Job Hazard Analysis Training Course?

Our JHA/JSA training course is regulation compliant, and our online version fulfills classroom training requirements. Each class contains sections on JHA vs. JSA, their roles in workplace safety, and more.
During this training, we will be taking a look at the specific procedures and tasks that are required of someone who is performing a JHA or JSA. As part of this training, you will learn the importance of completing a JHA and what workplaces are required to complete one. We will emphasize the roles that each the employer, supervisor, and employee have in the JHA process and discuss the various hazard controls that can be utilized on the worksite. Finally, we will talk about performing daily inspections and use case studies to demonstrate the negative results that may occur from ignoring or not complying with your JHA responsibilities.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA.
Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following laws and regulations:

  • Encompasses these U.S. Standards
  • General Duty Clause 5(a)(1) - “Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”

  • Encompasses these Canada Standards
  • ISO 31000 Standard – Risk Management: Principles and Guidelines

Job Hazard Analysis Train the Trainer Certification

The train the trainer option is used to certify a trainer to teach others using the included training kit. It incorporates the online course with an additional train the trainer module, as well as the training kit. This option results in an OSHA compliant lifetime trainer certification from Hard Hat Training. This certification is not company-specific, meaning you can take it with you should you change employers.

Job Hazard Analysis Competent Person Training

OSHA defines a “competent person” as someone who “is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in [their] surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees.” A competent person has the authorization to take “prompt corrective measures” to minimize or eliminate hazards. They have enough training and/or experience to be “capable of identifying workplace hazards relating to the specific operation and has the authority to correct them.”

Some standards do have additional, specific requirements that must be met in order for an employee to be considered a competent person. Our Competent Person option fulfills these specific requirements.

Why do I need Job Hazard Analysis training?

Although there are no specific standards requiring it, best practice states that anyone who conducts a JHA must receive training prior to carrying out their JHA duties.
When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances are very specific: workers must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent in their duties. Best practices say to apply this same rule to most types of training. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

Job Hazard Analysis Frequently Asked Questions

What is a JHA?

A job hazard analysis (JHA) is a process used to identify hazards within a worksite in order to implement safety controls. These safety controls are then used to eliminate the identified hazards or reduce the risk that they will occur.

What is the difference between a JHA and a JSA?

The two terms have been interpreted in a variety of ways and often used interchangeably, and standards are somewhat unclear about whether they are different things. However when it comes down to it, a JHA includes a risk assessment while a JSA does not.

What are the steps for performing a JHA?

The first step is to select the job to be analyzed. Then, you must break that job into the steps taken to accomplish it. Next, you need to identify the potential hazards associated with each task. Finally, take the time to develop preventative measures that can be used to reduce or eliminate the hazards that you have identified.

Who is responsible for performing the JHA on the jobsite?

While this will depend on your employer, the supervisor on the jobsite is typically the one who will be responsible for the JHA process. Employees should be invited to give input and help and employers should oversee the process.
