Who Should Take This Course?

A Job Hazard Analysis is a process used to identify and prevent hazards and injuries in a workplace before they occur. With this technique, the relationships between job tasks, tools, the work environment and workers are evaluated. The workplace hazards are identified so they can be reduced or eliminated. There are many alternate terms used to describe this process, such as Job Safety Analysis, Task Hazard Analysis, or Activity Hazard Analysis.

Our Online Introduction to Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) course helps workers learn basic information about: What is a Job Hazard Analysis (JHA)?; JHA Goals and Benefits; Prioritizing Jobs for JHA; Steps Included in a JHA; and more.
