Job Safety Analysis (JSA) simply means looking at the work task and considering what is the safest way to complete it. It is a way of becoming aware of the hazards involved in doing the job and taking action to prevent an injury.

Before starting a task, it is essential to think of what is the safest and best way to do it. These JSA Templates help in assessing the risks of doing the job.

The job safety analysis process:

  • Document the activity: Assemble those involved in the activity and then, list the tasks that make up the activity, step by step.
  • Identify the hazards: Next to each task, identify what part of the task may cause injury to those doing the work or to anyone else nearby.
  • Document the control measures: For each identified hazard, list the measures that need to be put in place to eliminate or minimize any likely risk of injury to those involved.
  • Identify who is responsible: Document the name of the person responsible for implementing the control measure.
  • Monitor and review: Make sure the activity is supervised to ensure the documented process is being followed. The JSA should be reviewed whenever a documented activity changes, when there is a change of personnel or after an appropriate length of time.
