Save Time on Your Next JHA with this Guide

August 16, 2019

It’s no accident that job hazard analyses (JHA) are required by many construction owners, GCs, CMs, and government agencies. These analyses help significantly reduce the risk of workplace incidents that could result in injury or property damage, thus reducing cost. Whether you’re developing a JHA to meet a requirement, or as part of your company’s standard process, this resource gives you a head start.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • Information to help you identify the jobs that require hazard analysis
  • Guidance on developing JHAs for your projects
  • A sample JHA that uses the hazards and safe work practices outlined in the guide
  • A list of job components, along with the associated hazards and safe work practices for each, that can be easily plugged into your JHA

Using these tools and guidelines will save you time and make the JHA development process easier and more cost-effective than starting from scratch.

However, new research indicates that when exposure occurs in enclosed spaces, exposure time is greater than 30 minutes, and some kind of expiratory exertion is taking place, such as shouting, singing, or exercising, the virus can be transmitted in aerosol form (smaller particles suspended in air).…
