Reasons Why a Job Hazard Analysis Matters

OSHA puts worker safety above all else, and expects employers to do their part in identifying potential hazards and taking corrective actions to eliminate them or reduce the risks they pose to an acceptable level. Whether employers are looking to keep their workforce safe and ensure compliance before accidents occur, or need to ensure effective responses to enforcement actions that mitigate exposure to potentially devastating consequences, a job hazard analysis is an important part of the puzzle.
