MSMWHS201 Conduct hazard analysis

Information about the course:

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to conduct a hazard analysis. These are typically called:

  • job safety analysis (JSA)
  • job hazard analysis (JHA)
  • job safety and environmental analysis (JSEA)
  • safe work method statement (SWMS)

It is not intended to apply to simpler routine hazard checks, such as 'Take 5', Step Back 5x5, five step or similar.

This might be done as an independent activity in order to identify hazards and the appropriate hazard controls, or it might be done as part of a broader process, such as identifying and appling for the permits required for a job.

The conducting of a hazard analysis may be required under a safety case, by organisation procedures or simply as being good practice.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Target audience:

This unit of competency applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team or group and working in liaison with other shift team members and the control room operator, as appropriate.
