Sawing Machine Operator Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Sawing Machine Operator Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is an app that can be used by operators of sawing machines.
How does it work?
Sawing is inherently dangerous, specially in a manufacturing, commercial, or industrial setting where large quantities and large pieces of material are being processed quickly. This app helps sawing machine operators to identify all of the job steps, hazards and risks associated with each job task, and risk mitigation and hazard controls that can be put in place to reduce the risk or injury or death from operating a sawing machine. Saws and sawing machines are equipped with sharp blades, oscillating multi-tools, precision cutting devices, and more. Operating a saw can create kickback, generate lots of wood dust which is an inhalation risk, and create the possibility of cutting injuries from blades. This app notes the personal protection equipment (PPE) that should be used by an operator of a sawing machine.
