JHA Course Overview
The NASP Job Hazard Analysis training course is designed to help students learn the process of analyzing tasks and ranking potential hazards quantitatively to ensure jobs are completed as safely as possible. Risk levels for tasks are evaluated based on severity, frequency and probability of occurrence, allowing the JHA specialist to evaluate methodologies and find the safest approach.
This program covers the following:
- Analyzing tasks to evaluate potential hazards.
- Understanding the hierarchy of hazard control measures and when to use them.
- Calculating the risk associated with a task based on quantitative properties.
- Applying the concept of acceptable risk and the residual risk reduction method.
- Learning common techniques of “what-if” and Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP) in evaluating processes with hazardous chemicals.
- Knowing OSHA job hazard analysis compliances.
Once you’ve completed your coursework, you’ll be required to take a comprehensive final exam to demonstrate your new skills. You’ll have two opportunities to pass with a score of 80% or higher in order to earn your designation as a job hazard analysis specialist with NASP.
Our JHA course takes approximately 13 hours to complete. NASP is accredited by IACET to issue 1.3 continuing education units (CEUs) for ongoing learning to students who successfully complete this training. Your CEUs will be reflected on your final certificate.
