When is a JSA Required
Workplace hazard identification and an assessment of those hazards should be performed before every job.
A JSA is a documented risk assessment developed when employees are requested to perform a specific task.
A JSA is to be completed at the worksite with input from everyone in the work crew
All steps must have their individual risk ranking mitigated to a 1 before work can begin.
PPE is always the last line of defense when reducing the risk of a work step.
All JSAs must be revalidated after lunch and/or an extended break from the worksite
