Job Hazard Analysis - A Guide to Voluntary Compliance and Beyond

 James Roughton and Nathan Crutchfield believe that the Job Hazard Analysis  should be the centerpiece of any risk control and occupational safety and health program.   In this book,  Job Hazard Analysis: A Guide for Voluntary Compliance and Beyond, the authors present improved concepts for the JHA,  incorporating elements from Risk and Hazard Identification and Assessment, Training, Employee Involvement, Behavior-Based Safety and Six Sigma.

They take the reader through the whole process of developing tools for identifying workplace hazards, developing systems that support hazard recognition, developing an effective JHA, and managing a JHA based program.  Using their process, the JHA is incorporated into occupational safety and health management systems, allowing businesses to move from mere compliance to pro-active safety management. The book is supported by examples of JHAs, end of chapter review questions, sample checklists, action plans and forms.

The book provides methods  to develop the risk assessment basis needed for ANSI/AIHA Z10 and other safety and health management systems and includes numerous real-life examples, end of chapter review questions, sample checklists, action plans and forms
