Workplace safety is extremely important to our company. We have initiated a safety program that meets OSHA regulations and requirements. Our goal is to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for our staff and customers. Our program deals with training on Personal protective equipment, fire safety, driver safety, toolbox safety meetings and maintaining a clean work place. Our entire staff is screened for drugs and alcohol once per year and is randomly selected one additional time per year. The possession or consumption of alcohol, drugs or any other controlled substance is against policy and violators are subject to immediate dismissal. We strive for a record of zero accidents and incidents.
JOBSITE SAFETY ANALYSIS
American Office Installers uses a job safety analysis (JSA) process—also referred to as a job hazard analysis. The JSA is an effective means of helping reduce incidents, accidents and injuries in the workplace and can also be an excellent tool to use during new employee orientations, training and investigations.
A JSA is a multi-step process:
To start the JSA process, select the job or task to be performed. Any job that has hazards or potential hazards is a candidate for a JSA. An uncommon or seldom-performed job is also a candidate for a JSA.
List the crew members’ name and task directed to complete by Lead Installer/Supervisor on the jobsite.
Inspect jobsite, Identify and document ALL potential safety hazards on ALL jobsites and communicate to ALL crew working on the jobsite each day on the site.
Identify, document and communicate all steps, hazards and safe work procedures before starting the job. This should be done on a daily basis prior to starting any work on the jobsite.
• Basic job steps: Break the job down into a sequence of steps, each of which should accompany a major task. Then, examine the series of movements required to perform that task. For example, moving a box from a truck into storage requires a number of different movements. Make sure to number these movements in sequence with the job task in the chart provided below.
• Potential hazards: Identify and record the hazards or potential hazards associated with each job step. It is important to look at the entire environment to determine every conceivable hazard that might exist. Additionally, make sure to watch out for sources of energy that could create a hazard.
• Recommended safe job procedures: Once you’ve recorded the basic job steps and potential hazards, use the chart below to decide which actions are necessary to eliminate, control or minimize hazards.
