Employers are required to identify workplace hazards and protect their employees from harm. Furthermore, employees have the right to know about the hazards in their jobs and how to protect themselves. One way to accomplish this is to conduct a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) on any tasks that concern the safety of employees. This course has been designed to help you meet all regulatory and government requirements including the Occupational Health and Safety Code.
