How to Structure and Write a Job Hazard Analysis / Activity Hazard Analysis (JHA - AHA) in Accordance with OSHA 1926 - EM 385

Duration: 90 Minutes
The requirement for Contractors to submit a JHA/ AHA in advance of their coming to work on a job is increasing across most lines of construction and industrial work activity. The document is becoming an accepted standard of competency by most of the large contractors, by project owners and lenders. It is basically a written and detailed game plan for the work you plan to on a Project. The more information you can provide on the JHA shows that you are competent and in control of the multiple operational variables, from the simple to the complex, that can affect the safety outcome of any job.
