Safe Work Procedures
WHAT IS A CRITICAL JOB INVENTORY?
A critical job inventory is a list of jobs/tasks and the potential loss associated with each one. To create a critical job inventory, review the specific tasks within your department. Rank each activity identified using the scales below based on the potential Severity of the incident, Probability of the incident occurring and Frequency of the task. Total all rankings. The lower the Critical Rating, the more hazardous the job/task is. When a new job is introduced into the workplace, add it to your inventory list. It is important that this process never stops.
WHAT IS A JOB HAZARD ANALYSIS?
A Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) or Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is an effective tool in breaking down specific job tasks in order to determine the hazards involved in the task and what is required to prevent injuries and/or accidents. A formal job hazard analysis is a procedure designed to study the job for any potential hazard caused by the machine, the surroundings or the worker.

WHAT IS A SAFE WORK PROCEDURE:
Safe Work Procedures (SWP) are detailed steps of how to conduct a specific job task. The SWP should clearly outline what task is being referred to. It also outlines who is responsible for what in the organization; such as provision of equipment, what happens if you fail to wear the equipment and references specific guidelines/regulatory requirements.
