  3. 3. What Is Job Safety Analysis? <ul><li>Method used to break a job task into separate and distinct steps </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate the hazards associated with each step </li></ul><ul><li>Determine the appropriate controls needed to control each of the identified hazards </li></ul>
  4. 4. Benefits of Job Safety Analysis <ul><li>Identifies unsafe work practices before an accident occurs </li></ul><ul><li>Decreases injury rates </li></ul><ul><li>Increases quality </li></ul><ul><li>Increases productivity </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative to using rates as an Incentive only!!! </li></ul>
  5. 5. Uses Of Job Safety Analyses <ul><li>Evaluate existing jobs </li></ul><ul><li>Set up new jobs </li></ul><ul><li>Training and re-training tool </li></ul><ul><li>Prioritize jobs needing re-design </li></ul><ul><li>Ties in closely with other job analyses (quality & productivity studies, RTW) </li></ul><ul><li>Reference in accident investigations </li></ul>
  6. 6. No JSA = Bad <ul><li>The report found that risk assessment was “often incomplete,” that business units did not understand or address major hazards, and that competency in risk and hazard assessment was poor. BP March 2004 audit finding. “Many [people] reported errors due to a lack of time for job analysis, lack of adequate staffing, a lack of supervisor staffing, or a lack of resident knowledge of the unit in the supervisory staff.” 2005 Telus survey </li></ul>
