Elevator Mechanic Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Elevator Mechanic Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is an app used for performing a job hazard analysis for elevator mechanics, but can also be used for elevator constructors, elevator installers and repairers, or any other type of elevator technician.
How does it work?
Working on elevators presents a range of hazards and safety threats including working in a small elevator shaft, being subjected to crushing injuries during repair of critical elevator car systems, and working with heavy equipment suspended above a worker. This app helps to identify all job tasks and steps, as well as risk assessment strategies that can be performed to help these mechanics understand the risks posed to them, and engage in hazard controls and risk mitigation strategies to promote workplace safety and eliminate or reduce work-related deaths and injuries. This app notes a range of relevant risk avoidance strategies for a specific job task as well as the required personal protective equipment (PPE) that an elevator mechanic should use. Use of this app is critically important for occupational safety, and promoting a safe work environment, as well as ensuring elevator safety for users, as well as installers. This app when used properly can reduce workers' compensation claims, as well as minimizing downtime due to injury.
