A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is where a team meets before a job to identify potential hazards and discuss the safest way to do the job. A JSA is also known as a JHS (Job Hazard Analysis) or possibly a Job Hazard Breakdown.
Potential hazards are not limited to the job and tools you will be directly working with, but any other potential hazard such as environmental risks (e.g the weather) or dangerous tasks, equipment, chemicals, etc used by other persons in the same work area.
JSA's typically include the following 6 steps:
This form is a sample report which can be imported into your iScout account and modified to fit your organization's policies and procedures.
If you don't have an iScout account, download the printable Job Safety Analysis PDF form so your team can fill out a paper copy.
Check out the Forms Overview or learn about specific features:
Start from a pre-built template or design your own form from scratch.
Once team members have downloaded the app, they can fill out reports offline - including attachments! The report will automatically upload once connectivity resumes.
Assign follow-ups within a report and track incomplete items.
You decide who can submit reports, view responses, and more.
Setup individual or group notifications for certain reports. For example, you may want notifications for critical issues but not minor ones.
iScout automatically generates rich analytic tools so you can filter, visualize, and export all the data you're collecting.
Run participation reports to see who is submitting reports and when they're being submitted.
Collect electronic signatures when your team fill out reports.
Forms filled out through the web browser can be automatically translated into 100+ languages.
As your team edits a report, the system will automatically track what was changed, the author, and the date.
As projects, locations, etc change, the form will automatically update to include the latest options.
Clicking "Does Not Apply" dozens of times is counter-productive. Instead, hide questions that don't apply.
Some forms can be extremely complex, but that's no problem in iScout. Setup sub-reports to make it easier to fill out in sections.
