Overview

This book provides safety professionals and risk managers with a step-by-step, illustrated guide to identifying and preventing occupational hazards in any job. Created for long-term use, Job Hazard Analyses (JHA) help identify the basic steps for a job or task, identify the hazards associated with the job, and develop safe operating procedures to avoid those hazards. As a result, successful JHA programs create a defined safety awareness that leads to reduced injuries, reduced product and property damage, lower workers' compensation charges, and fewer on-the-job illnesses. Veteran safety professional George Swartz uses photographs and sample JHAs to show you how to compile a job list, complete the JHA forms, perform a job observation, and identify workplace hazards. In addition, he examines the 14 elements of a successful safety and health program and provides 25 integrated checklists for assessing common hazards by category.
