Ambulance Drivers Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Ambulance Drivers Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is a tool that should be used by EMS and EMT companies or departments, and private ambulance service companies to promote job safety through performing a comprehensive job hazard analysis/job safety analysis to note potential hazards and threats to health and safety in the workplace.
How does it work?
Ambulance drivers are presented with a number of potential threats and hazards in their day to day job tasks as they can serve both as commercial drivers, as EMS workers, and regularly must speed through traffic and lay caution to red lights and stop signs. Ambulance crashes and paramedic safety can be reduced through using apps such as this one. Maintaining and building a culture of occupational safety and workplace safety boils down to identifying each task in a job, and all of the job procedures and job steps in accomplishing those tasks. Each hazard is noted, and hazard controls can be implemented such as utilization of personal protective equipment (PPE), working to always identify hazards on the job, and regularly do a risk assessment to address existing hazards and new, potential hazards.
