The Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is a risk assessment tool in which the hazards that come along with a certain job or workplace are identified and, ideally, mitigated before they occur. In this way, hazards can be eliminated, or at least, reduced to an acceptable level of risk before they become an incident.
The JHA can also be used for:
- Accident investigations
- Job training
- Evaluation of new equipment or process
- Job evaluation record
