Traffic Technicians Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Traffic Technicians Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is an app that can be used to conduct or perform a job safety analysis or job hazard analysis for traffic technicians.
How does it work?
A traffic technician is a skilled worker that works to implement traffic control strategies to change and impact vehicle traffic. These individuals may serve the role of a safety technician, a traffic control technician, a data analyst, civil planner, and more. Traffic technicians often must deploy equipment on a road to collect data about traffic patterns. The work done both in the office and in the field can present dangers to workers - for example, office work may pose hazards such as carpal tunnel syndrome, or other postural risks, while field work can pose occupational health and safety threats such as exposure to roadside traffic, and work zone dangers. In implementing and installing roadsafe traffic systems, traffic signal systems, and traffic control devices, traffic technicians should use personal protective equipment (PPE) as is noted in this app. Ultimately, this app can improve the health and safety of these workers and reduce downtime due to employees missing work due to work-related injuries.
