A job hazard analysis (JHA), also called a job safety analysis (JSA), is a technique to identify the dangers of specific tasks in order to reduce the risk of injury to workers.Once you know what the hazards are, you can reduce or eliminate them before anyone gets hurt. The JHA can also be used to investigate accidents and to train workers how to do their jobs safely.It will take a little time to do your JHAs, but it’s time well spent. Be sure to involve employees in the process — they do the work and often know the best ways to work more safely.

Description & Benefit:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is issuing a proposed policy statement describing the agency’s treatment of voluntary employer self-audits that assess workplace safety and health conditions, including compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The proposed policy statement provides that the agency will not routinely request self-audit reports at the initiation of an inspection. Where a voluntary self-audit identifies a hazardous condition and the employer promptly takes self-audit reports at the initiation of an inspection. Where a voluntary self-audit identifies a hazardous condition and the employer promptly takes appropriate corrective measures, OSHA will treat the audit report as evidence of good faith, and not as evidence of a willful violation. OSHA requests public comment regarding it proposed policy statement.

OSHA has evaluated ways to help prevent lifting injuries. They specify two types of controls: engineering and administrative.

Engineering controls are used to redesign the workstation to minimize lifting hazards. Administrative controls include carefully selecting and training workers, so that they can perform their jobs safely.

Suggested administrative controls include:

Strength testing of existing workers: Studies have shown strength testing can prevent up to one-third of all work-related injuries. Through the strength-testing process, employers can discourage employees from performing tasks that exceed their strength capacities.

Employees should be trained to utilize proper lifting and carrying techniques that place minimum stress on the lower back.

All employers covered by the Workplace Safety & Insurance Act are required to have first aid equipment, facilities and trained workers in all workplaces. The First Aid Requirements (Regulation 1101) states what each employer is required to provide.

Prerequisites:

None

Course Information:

First Aid Training for Workers

1. What training is required?

Training depends on the number of workers per shift at a workplace:

a) For workplaces with 5 or fewer workers on any one shift, an Emergency First Aid certificate is required. This program consists of 6.5 hours of instruction.

b) For workplaces with 6 or more workers on any shift, a Standard First Aid certificate is required. This program consists of 13 hours of instruction.

2. Is CPR training equivalent to first aid training?

No, CPR is a mandatory module as part of a first aid training program.

3. Who can deliver first aid training?

Training is available through providers approved by the WSIB. See our list of approved first aid providers.

4. How many people do I need to have trained in first aid?

Employers must ensure that first aid stations are under the care of a worker with a valid first aid certificate at all times when work is in progress. Employers with more than one shift require first aiders for each shift. Having multiple trained first aiders is recommended to ensure compliance when a first aider is away from work ill or on vacation.

Employers with large workplaces need to have multiple trained first aiders. It is recommended that a first aider should be able to reach an injured or ill worker within a two minute walk (based on information that brain damage starts after about 4 minutes of no oxygen). Employers should conduct an assessment of their workplace to determine how quickly it would take for a first aider to attend to an injured or ill worker.

5. What are the first aid requirements for workers who use a vehicle for work?

Employers should ensure that all vehicles are equipped with a first aid kit. Workers should be instructed to report any incident requiring first aid and what to do in the case of an emergency.

First Aid Training Providers

1. How do I become an approved first aid training provider?

Training providers offering first aid programs should review the First Aid Training Criteria

Providers should contact a Senior Program Specialist to discuss the review process and obtain an “Application for First Aid Program Recognition”.

Course Includes:

Along with the completed application, providers must submit program documentation to the WSIB. Documentation includes:

  • participant manual
  • lesson plans
  • agenda
  • presentation material

Additional Information:

  • The expense of first aid equipment and services is the responsibility of the employer
  • First aid equipment must be inspected at least quarterly
  • First aid stations must be easily accessible and near a worker who has a valid first aid certificate from a WSIB-recognized training organization
  • Employers must post the first aid poster (Form 82), first aid certificates, and kit inspection card
  • Employers must keep detailed records of all incidents and first aid treatment given

You may assemble your own first aid kit for your workplace, using Regulation 1101 as a guide. You may also purchase ready-made first aid kits from the supplier of your choice. The WSIB does not endorse any particular first aid kit vendor.

Description & Benefit:

Compressed air is second only to electricity as the most popular source of energy in today’s advanced work environments. It powers a wide variety of tools and equipment as well as large machines and process lines. Benefits of compressed air include low maintenance costs, a low weight to power ratio and the ability to operate for long periods without overheating. Because electricity isn’t associated with compressed air use, most people don’t recognize the dangers posed by this equipment. Just like electricity, however, compressed air can be deadly if not treated with respect and used properly. This course stresses the importance of working safely with compressed air to prevent injuries.

Prerequisites:

None

Description & Benefit:

An inspection is a planned walk-through of a workplace or work-site designed to help the workplace meet compliance with the law; and more importantly allow for the identification and control of any factors that can cause injury or illness.

Routine workplace inspections are therefore a critical component of a good accident, occupational disease and fire prevention program.

Prerequisites:

None

Course Information:

This program will assist managers, supervisors, committee members and health and safety representatives in performing effective inspections. The purpose of the inspection is to determine if hazards are present, if workers have been or are likely to be exposed to hazards, if anyone has been injured as a result of the exposure; and whether or not safe working procedures are being followed by workers.

An inspection procedure has four components; preparation, inspection, reporting and follow-up. This course will take participants through these fundamental components and will provide a solid foundation for recognizing, assessing and controlling identified workplace hazards.
