What does JSA Mean?

JSA is an abbreviation term for Job Safety Analysis. It is a systematic technique of analyzing potential hazards for each task needed for a job. It helps integrate accepted health and safety protocols into a particular organizational operation to implement the safest way to complete the job.

In this article we will discuss the following:

What is a Job Safety Analysis Template?

A JSA template or Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) form is a useful tool for observing and breaking down high-risk tasks into individual steps and recommending controls. Supervisors and employees work together in accomplishing JSA templates to ensure that both have a good understanding of the hazards and come up with safety measures.

What a job safety analysis consists of

The process of job safety analysis typically involves four steps: (1) choosing the appropriate job to analyze; (2) breaking a job down into smaller tasks and observing a worker performing each task; (3) identifying the potential hazards and risk for each task; and (4) setting preventive measures and controls to prevent identified hazards.

Following the 4 steps for conducting a job safety analysis, a job analysis template consists of the following sections:

• Job task being assessed

The supervisor or safety officer will describe the job and identify the workers observed during the analysis.

• Hazards and safety measures

The observer will determine the potential hazard for each task being performed and come up with control measures to minimize or eliminate the hazard.

• Recommendations

Recommendations on how each task can be accomplished safely will be recorded on the JSA and submitted for review and implementation.
