It is an organised look at what, in your work activities and workplace, could cause harm to people. This will allow you to weigh up whether you have taken adequate precautions or should do more to avoid harm. The important things you need to decide are whether a hazard is significant and whether you have covered it by satisfactory precautions so that the risk is acceptably low.
What do the terms 'hazard' and 'risk' mean?
A Job Safety Analysis is the systematic identification of potential hazards in the work place by personnel as a first step to controlling the possible risks involved.
Job Safety Analysis should assess the risk that may be present in all work activities, and may identify particular areas for more detailed 'specific' assessments.
