The Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) approach to doing a hazard assessment for PPE is a more comprehensive method and may be more useful in larger businesses with many hazards and/or complex safety issues. It also helps you assign a Risk Priority Code to the hazard to determine the course of actions you need to take to control the hazard.
Name of your work place

Job Hazard Analysis Assessment for PPE:
1. Conduct a walk through survey of your business.
For each job/task step, note the presence of any of the following hazard types (see table below), their sources, and the body parts at risk. Fill out the left side of the hazard assessment form (for help, see samples on p.29-30 in the guide). Gather all the information you can.
2. Analyze the hazard.
For each job task with a hazard source identified, use the Job Hazard Analysis Matrix table and discuss the hazard with the affected employee and supervisor. Fill out the right side of the hazard assessment form:
3. Take action on the assessment.
Depending on the assigned Risk Level/Code (or Risk priority), take the corresponding action according to the table above:
A high risk priority means that there is a reasonable to high probability that an employee will be killed or permanently disabled doing this task step and/or a high probability that the employee will suffer severe illness or injury!
