TDI’s approach to the Job Safety analysis (JSA) is described in the Safety Management Manual Chapter 14. A JSA is a participatory risk assessment conducted by the line workers and led by their supervisor before beginning a task.
The workers doing the task are in the best position to recognize the hazards they face and the risks involved. That is why the JSA requires participation by all workers who will perform that task.
The JSA process breaks a task into component steps, identifies hazards associated with each step and describes how the hazards will be mitigated.
- JSAs for Technical Work (Box Core, Piston, Heat Flow, etc. )
- JSAs for Vessel Work
- JSA for work not requiring a permit (Permits have built in JSAs)
