Accidents that occur in the workplace are often preventable with the proper training and precautions. Performing a job hazard analysis before a task starts is one of the most critical methods for preventing workplace injuries.

Prevent accidents in the workplace by getting certified as a job hazard analysis specialist with The National Association of Safety Professionals (NASP).

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.

This program covers the following:
