Food Preparation Worker Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Food Preparation Worker Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is an app that can be used by those performing a job hazard and job safety analysis for a food preparation worker or food service worker in a restaurant or prepared food facility.
How does it work?
Food preparation can pose risks to workers such as illness from contaminated food, impacts to health and safety from heat sources, burns from hot oil, cuts from knives or other sharp machinery and more. Chefs and head cooks, as well as a prep cook or line cook may all be subject to a range of potential hazards in the workplace. This app can note the specific job tasks or job steps, the associated risks or hazards, and hazard controls or process controls that can be put in place to promote the health and safety of these workers in a food establishment or manufacturing facility. This app notes the required personal protective equipment (PPE) that a user determines as necessary to use in a kitchen or workplace, and can be integrated into training for a food prep worker. Successfully using this app can help to reduce downtime in the workplace, and reduce workers' compensation claims.
