The risk assessment can double as a chemical instruction to keep your employees informed about risks and required procedures.

How Job Hazard Analysis works

In SDS Manager, you can create Job Hazard Analysis (Job procedure) according to OSHA REACH and COSHH.

A Job Hazard Analysis is typically used to describe a work procedure involving chemicals, but it is also possible to create work procedures that do not include any chemicals and only use non-substance-related hazards, e.g. Electrical hazards.

Employees can be assigned to the Job Hazard Analysis and can be asked to electronically confirm that they have read and understood the assigned Job Hazard Analysis.

How to create a Chemical Risk Assessment using SDS Manager

Job Hazard Analysis – General information
A job procedure has the following GENERAL information: Frequency of the Job procedure, Description of the procedure, Description of the job steps and Description of the hazards
Assign locations and users
You may want to link a job procedure to a location or users.
Mail notification to assign users
When you link users to a Job procedure, the user will receive an email requesting the user to review the Job procedure and to click "Confirm I have read" the procedure. This help you document that procedures are read by assigned users.
Chemicals used in the Job procedure

The Job Hazard Analysis can be linked to one or more risk-assessed chemicals (SDSs).

Only risk assessed SDS can be linked to the Job procedure.

I.e. you are creating a Job Hazard Analysis involving e.g. 2 chemicals, you first create Chemical risk assessment for each of the two SDSs and then link the risk assessed chemicals to the Job Hazard Analysis.

Risk rating
The risk rating of the Job procedure is calculated as the highest rating found in the linked Chemical risk assessments.
Non-substance-related hazards
Non-substance-related safety hazards can also be added to the Job-procedure.
Risk categories for Job

On the Job procedure risk assessment, the risks will be listed for use without PPE and Controls and the risk with Controls.

SDS Manager use a risk classification range from 1-5 for (H)ealth, (S)afety and (E)nvironment where 3 is the highest acceptable risk for employees

Inform employees
The controls identified in the Job Hazard Analysis ensure employees are informed about the required PPE and controls.
Secondary container labels
PPE icons and a QR code linking to Chemical Instructions are displayed on secondary container labels for products that have undergone risk assessment.

Have questions?

Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is a systematic approach used to identify, assess, and control the hazards associated with specific job tasks. It aims to minimize the risk of injury or illness for workers by identifying potential hazards before they occur.

JHA is crucial for maintaining a safe workplace by proactively identifying and mitigating risks associated with job tasks. It helps prevent accidents and injuries, ensures compliance with safety regulations, and promotes a culture of safety within the organization.

A JHA should be conducted:

Before introducing new processes or equipment.

When new information about workplace hazards becomes available.

After an incident or near miss to prevent recurrence.

Periodically, to ensure existing controls are effective and to identify new hazards.

Yes, conducting JHAs helps organizations comply with safety regulations by systematically identifying and controlling job-related hazards. It demonstrates a proactive approach to worker safety and can be an integral part of meeting regulatory requirements.
