Railcar Loading and Unloading: Job Safety Analysis Form Mobile App
The purpose of the Railcar Loading and Unloading: Job Safety Analysis Form mobile app is to convey information about ways to mitigate risks associated with railcar loading, unloading, and movement at cement plants and terminals.
How does it work?
The Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is an important incident prevention tool that works by identifying hazards and eliminating or minimizing them before the job is performed. The JSA can be used for: clarifying job procedures; as a guide in new employee safety orientation training, periodic refresher training, and refresher training for senior workers; as a refresher for infrequently run jobs; as an incident investigation tool; and for informing employees about specific job hazards and protective measures.
Set priorities for developing JSAs: jobs that have produced many injuries; jobs that result in many incidents; jobs with a high potential for serious incident; and new jobs or operations that haven't been performed before. Whenever it is necessary for a person to ride on a railcar, a Job Safety Analysis should be completed to ensure safe practices are followed. If the locomotive is not in tow of a car, the switchman should ride inside of the cab or on the secured platform.
