Job Hazard Analysis

A Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) entails decomposing a job into its individual components and then
assessing each one to check for potential hazards. The next step is to either eliminate each risk or
identify a worker protection strategy (safe practice or PPE). JHA pays attention to the relationship
between the worker, the task, the tools, and the work environment.
OSHA does not specify any requirement for completing a JHA. It, however, does provide
guidelines in 1910 Subpart I App B – Non-mandatory Compliance Guidelines for Hazard
Assessment and Personal Protective Equipment Selection.
