Ship Carpenters and Joiners Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet Mobile App
The Ship Carpenters and Joiners Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Worksheet is an app that can be used for identifying job hazards and threats to health and safety for ship carpenters and joiners.
How does it work?
Ship carpenters and joiners are specialized in carpentry and joinery, ship work, and building ships. People in this job may work as machine operators, manual laborers, and in other ship-related occupations. This app allows a user to note each job step or task, the hazards to health and well-being associated with each job step or task, and potential hazard controls that can be used to improve occupational health. Ship building is particularly wrought with health hazards as ships must be built in a certain way to ensure the safety of its occupants. The chemicals used in ship making can include those that cause cancer, asbestos-related disease, Hodgkin's disease, and more. Additionally, health problems such as hand-arm vibration syndrome, wood dust inhalation, and threats from cutting and other related work. This app can help to ensure that health and safety are promoted in these types of jobs, and that downtime is reduced due to workers missing jobs from injuries or illness.
