Job Hazard Analysis

A job hazard analysis is a technique that focuses on job tasks as a way to identify hazards before they occur. It focuses on the relationship between the worker, the task, the tools, and the work environment. Ideally, after you identify uncontrolled hazards, you will take steps to eliminate or reduce them to an acceptable risk level.

A Job Hazard Analysis is part of every new position description.  If you are working on a new PD, you can use the information in the following templates to help you complete JHA section.  These examples are not meant to represent all roles on campus but encompass many of the common tasks performed while at work.
