Pesticide Handlers Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Pesticide Handlers Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is an app that can be used for performing a job hazard analysis or job safety analysis for workers that handle pesticide including pest control workers and pesticide product manufacturers.
How does it work?
Pest management and pest control services often use pesticides and chemical treatments that can present workers with potential exposure hazards, while manufacturers are also in a position where pesticide exposure can readily occur. This app walks through each job step or task a pesticide handler, noting all potential hazards, and ways to mitigate those hazards including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and more. This app can be included as a part of a worker protection standard or safe work program. Some of the risk mitigation and hazard control processes may include proper pesticide containers, wearing a long-sleeved shirt to avoid skin exposure to pesticides, proper pesticide label processes and procedures, and having training in place for detecting pesticide poisoning.
