Chemicals General Exposure Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) Mobile App
When performing work associated with working around or with hazardous chemicals, it is important to understand the particular risks associated with chemical exposure.
How does it work?
Using The Chemicals General Exposure Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) app, a user can note all of the job steps being performed that are related to hazardous chemicals or subject them to general chemical exposure, and they can identify the associated potential hazards with that job step or duty. Once hazards and risk-factors have been properly identified, engineering controls and other control measures can be put in place to reduce the impact of these hazards or the potential for these hazards. This may include the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), having a proper chemical injury protocol or exposure assessment in place in the workplace, ensure that chemical agents that are particularly hazardous are properly noted as such, and ensure that a workplace meets or exceeds all OSHA standards. By going through the process to identify potential hazards and hazardous conditions, and then implementing mitigating factors, the work environment can be made safer, training and training materials can be properly tailored, and the occupational health and safety of personnel can be viewed as an important part of a workplace.
