Job Safety Assessment or JSA is used to describe how to perform a task step-by-step, any hazards associated with a task, and controls to mitigate these hazards. JSAs can be used to educate employees on safe practices prior to utilizing equipment.
JSAs should be developed for all equipment and specific operations that present safety hazards and/or concerns. Employees must receive safety training and have a good understanding of the instructions and hazards listed in the JSA prior to engaging in such work practices.
Nearly 3 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses were reported by private industry employers, resulting in an incidence rate of 3.4 cases per 100 equivalent full-time workers, according to the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (2012). Majority of the causes is because of a potentially unsafe working environment or the noticed and unnoticed hazards within the workplace. The importance of conducting a worksite hazard assessment is immense; if the tragedies caused to an employee and their family by serious injury or death isn't reason enough, company losses as a result each year are in the billions of dollars.
PCS Consultants, Inc. Job Safety Assessment is essentially the assessment of work activities and the workplace to establish whether adequate precautions are in place. In other words, it is the systematic identification of potential hazards in the workplace as a step to controlling the possible risks involved. A job safety assessment is a procedure which helps integrate accepted safety and health principles and practices into a particular task or job operation. In a JSA, each basic step of the job is to identify potential hazards and to recommend the safest way to do the job.
