Correction Officer Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Correction Officer Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is a job safety analysis and hazard analysis app that can be used to identify potential hazards for correction officers, other Department of Corrections (DOC) workers, sheriff's office personnel, and law enforcement working in a correctional facility.
How does it work?
Working in a correctional institution presents many potential safety hazards related to working with dangerous inmates, as well as inmates in specialized correctional treatment programs, or high-risk programs. The proper use of his app will help an analyst or staff member that is tasked with performing the risk assessment and hazard analysis with the tools and insight to improve job safety, mitigate risks, and control hazards. In this app, the user is able to document all of the job tasks and job steps, focusing on the steps that a correction officer takes when discharging their duties in the workplace. Any relevant hazards or other dangers that may occur during job procedures are noted, and hazard controls and mitigation steps are taken to improve the health and safety of personnel. After the risk assessment is performed to identify hazards, and control measures are put in place, the app notes the minimum personal protective equipment (PPE) required for the correction officer's job to be completed safely. Ultimately, use of this app can reduce injury, help personnel with identifying hazards, and implementing training techniques that improve the health and safety of personnel.
