Job Safety Analysis (JSA) and Risk Control Course

Course Overview

A JSA is a safety tool. It helps people to logically examine a particular job or task so that all the hazards associated with that particular job can be identified and assessed and when necessary, suitable control measures can be determined.

The aim of a JSA is to document how a particular job should be done safely.

Participants will learn to conduct risk assessments and using that information, develop a JSA.

Our course is designed to teach participants how to accurately complete a risk assessment and Job Safety Analysis (JSA) in accordance with their workplace procedures.

This course is the starting point for those who may need to complete JSA’s or risk assessments as part of their normal work duties or want to professionally develop their risk assessment skills and knowledge.

They will review the risk assessment process of their workplace, covering risk controls, consequences and categories of risk using Hierarchy of hazard control and residual risk reduction strategies.

There are a number of different benefits that result from the process of conducting JSA’s in the workplace, which include:

  • Raising the level of general safety awareness
  • Identifying hazards that have not been previously identified or properly controlled
  • As a tool for use in training applications
  • As a reference tool when conducting accident investigations
  • As a basis for preparing a written Safe Work Procedure.
