Job Hazard Analysis


In industrial settings where accidents and injuries are frequent or recurring, a job hazard analysis is a systematic way to identify the risk factors in a job or system. Job redesign and employee training can be implemented to support workplace safety programs and reduce the likelihood of injury from those risk factors.

Hazards can include exposure to chemicals, asbestos or beryllium, heavy equipment (crushing, roll-over, striking employees), repetitive motion injuries (including carpel tunnel), strains, sprains, and exertion injuries.
