The top 10 workers holding the most dangerous jobs in the United States are loggers, fishers, aircraft pilots, roofers, refuse and recyclable material collectors, steelworkers, truck drivers, farmers and other agricultural workers, and extraction workers. (Source: Safety Culture).
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018, there were 2.8 million non-fatal injuries and illnesses reported in the workplace by private industry employers (Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics).
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.
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.
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.
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.
