Job Safety Analysis

A process of formal identification, recording and assessment of the
risks involved in any particular operation so that appropriate controls
can be introduced.


Hazard - Anything which has the potential to cause harm
to people, damage to property, environment or company reputation.

How to prepare a Job Safety Analysis (JSA)

The basic steps involved in preparing a JSA are:

1. Understand the job

2. Break Job Down into Steps (Sequence)

3. Identify Potential Hazards

4. Identify & Develop Control Measures

5. Identify the person responsible

Difference between Job Safety Analysis & Risk Assessment

The only difference between JSA & the normal RA is that in the JSA there is no risk rating/classification system that allow you to compare risk to another so as to set priorities.
