Do you need to perform Job Safety Analysis (JSA) in your workplace to comply with the new legislation? The changes in the Health & Safety at work act of 2015 kick in, in 2016 which mean more reporting and paperwork.
This can prove stressful when you and your team are already busy and have a full time jobs and the last thing you want to be doing is messing around on the internet for 30 minutes every time you do a JSA looking for all the things you need to say and do to comply with the new legislation. Then there is the extra time and messing around with changing printer cartridges and buying paper so you printing things out - and really getting your head in the game when it comes to paperwork.
It comes with 50 sheets and all you have to do is follow the instructions and fill in the boxes as it guide you through a JSA. You can also buy refills here.
Job Safety Analysis (JSA) simply means looking at the work task and considering what is the safest way to complete it. A JSA is similar to a Task Analysis but brings the risk factor into play. It is a way of becoming aware of the hazards/risks involved in doing the job and taking action to prevent unintended consequences including; injury, loss of productivity, damage to property, reputation, environmental or financial loss. The process is suitable for different trades and different tasks, and does not require enormous amounts of time or use endless pieces of paper.
Initial benefits from developing a JSA will become clear in the preparation stage. The analysis process may identify previously undetected hazards and increase the job knowledge of those performing that task. Safety and health awareness is raised and it can help improve communication between workers and supervisors.
It should be done by all workers who are doing the job and at the time of undertaking the work, not just the principal contractor or supervisor.
