Construction Safety Job Hazard Assessment Weekly Tailgate Topic (Canada) Mobile App
The Construction Safety Instructions for Conducting a Job Hazard Analysis (Canada) Weekly Tailgate Topic app is used as a part of a company's safety program to provide instruction as a part of a weekly dialogue as to how to perform a job hazard analysis.
How does it work?
This prompts the company to take actions such as involving workers, in the entire process of discussing risk assessments and chosen courses of action; regularly review accident and injury history to identify the job sites and activities that present employees withe greatest degree of occupational safety; identify relevant work place safety standards that apply to relevant jobs; set priorities including jobs or sites with the highest injury or illness rates, where there have been "close calls", and where violations of OSHA standards occurred. Additionally, jobs with the highest potential for injuries or illnesses, but where none have occurred should be included in the job hazard analysis.
A weekly safety meeting such as those included in the weekly tailgate topic series are helpful in promoting construction safety in the work place.
