Job  Hazard Analysis/PPE

Job-related injuries and fatalities occur every daydanger sign in the workplace. These injuries often occur because employees are not trained in the proper job procedure. One way to prevent workplace injuries is to establish proper job procedures and train all employees in safer and more efficient work methods. Establishing proper job procedures is one of the benefits of conducting a job hazard analysis- carefully studying and recording each step of a job, identifying existing or potential job hazards (both safety and health), and determining the best way to perform the job or to reduce or eliminate these hazards. Improved job methods can reduce costs resulting from employee absenteeism and workers' compensation, and can often lead to increased productivity.

JHA General Requirements Subpart I - Personal Protective Equipment
Assessment  Requirements



A hazard assessment is an important element of a PPE program because it produces the information needed to select the appropriate PPE for any hazards present or likely to be present at particular workplaces. Your employer is then capable of determining and evaluating the hazards of a particular workplace. 29 CFR 1910.132(d) of the PPE standard details hazard assessment requirements. It is a performance-oriented provision that simply requires management to use their awareness of workplace hazards to enable them to select the appropriate PPE for the work being performed. 



  • Requires employers to select appropriate PPE based on the hazards present or likely to be present in the workplace; 
  • Prohibits the use of defective or damaged PPE; and 
  • Requires that employees be trained so that each affected employee can properly use the assigned PPE.
