How to Complete a Job Hazard Analysis

A job hazard analysis (JHA) is completed prior to the start of any construction job where there is potential for injury or accident. Larger general contractors have made these a common requirement before the start of work on their projects. This is a way for both subcontractors and general contractors to collaborate on safety management. A JHA helps determine the risk of the work being completed on the site. In simple terms, it is a tool to reduce the chance of a loss from occurring.
