Who can use this policy
This policy can be used by all employers.


A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is required under most state and territory statutes, but more importantly is an essential tool in ensuring the safety of workers.  A JSA should be performed for each process or “job” in a workplace.


  1. breaks down a job into steps;
  2. identifies the hazards associated with each step;
  3. assesses the risks associated with each step; and
  4. allocates control measures for each step.

Under most state and territory statutes, you are required to consult with other duty holders in the development of JSAs.  Notwithstanding the statutory obligations, engaging with workers who do the tasks has a dual advantage:

  1. the workers who perform the task are often the best people to identify the hazards or risks and in proposing control measures; and
  2. engaging the workers at an early stage makes it easier to put in place the control measures.


At the back of the JSA form is a Risk Assessment Tool.  The Risk Management Procedure provides more detail on how to carry out a risk assessment of individual jobs.

Once all the hazards and risks have been identified, the results are collectively recorded together in the Risk Register.  This allows for prioritisation of resources to risks.
