Safety Simplified: Job Hazard Analysis and Mitigation

By Joe Kenny

Three little pigs, three bears, three wishes. In storytelling, significant things often come in threes. So it is with worker safety. This spring you’ll be hearing more about three new systems for improving workplace safety:

1. The routine Job Hazard Analysis and Mitigation (JHAM) for day-today tasks
2. The non-routine JHAM for new, unfamiliar activities
3. The Area Hazard Analysis

In turn each of these systems relies simply on you asking these three questions:

1. What are the job steps, tasks, or equipment?
2. What are the hazards associated with the task (or area)?
3. How do I mitigate each hazard? For More Information
