Mining Machine Operator Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Mining Machine Operator Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is a safety analysis and hazard analysis app that can be used by mining machine operators.
How does it work?
Mining machine operators may engage in many different activities and machinery use including operating self-propelled mining machines that rip coal, metal and nonmetal ores, rock, stone, or sand from the mine face and load it onto conveyors or into shuttle cars in a continuous operation, or machinery such as a crusher, a haul truck, an excavator, a grinding machine, longwall shears, plows, and cutting machines. Mining machine operators often serve as a heavy equipment operator and their jobs are wrought with potential hazards both from working in a mine, as well as working with heavy equipment. This app documents all job steps a worker performs, every potential hazard associated with each job task, and through this hazard assessment, notes potential mitigation strategies that can be used. This app also allows a user to note the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) that can help improve the occupational safety and health of workers. Using this job safety analysis can help to improve the health and safety of machinery operators in mines.
