When conducting a Job Safety Analysis (JSA), safety professionals use a risk matrix to pinpoint potential hazards in the workplace, based on how probable and how severe that potential hazard may be.
The risk matrix calculates the probability and severity levels separately, then multiplies them together to produce the overall risk level. For example, risk levels that are high on the probability scale and moderate on the severity scale are considered serious. On the other hand, risk levels on the lower end of the probability and severity scale are considered low.
IndustrySafe’s JSA module can help with these evaluations by assisting in performing risk assessments for possible hazards and using an easily customizable risk matrix to calculate risk levels. To learn more about how IndustrySafe can supplement your JSA assessment needs, visit our website.
