Customizable Job Safety Analysis (JSA) templates for specific equipment and employee training.

What is a Job Safety Analysis (JSA)?

JSAs are used to describe how to perform a task step-by-step, any hazards associated with a task, and controls to mitigate these hazards. JSAs can be used to educate employees on safe practices prior to utilizing equipment.

When should a JSA be created?

JSAs should be developed for all equipment and specific operations that present safety hazards and/or concerns. Employees must receive safety training and have a good understanding of the instructions and hazards listed in the JSA prior to engaging in such work practices.

Who is responsible for creating JSAs?

Although supervisors and safety professionals generally develop the JSAs, they must be reviewed by workers performing the job for feedback and suggestions. Often times, employees who routinely utilize equipment and/or perform specific job tasks are better able to identify certain hazards associated with the work, so it is critical that those individuals be involved in the JSA development process.

How do I obtain JSA templates?

Visit the JSA template library to download templates for use in Microsoft Word. These documents should be customized to specific equipment and operations and used for employee safety training.
