Health & Safety Standards and Procedures

*** Please note that some modifications are currently being made to the JHA site. You may experience difficulty accessing the portal as a result. We apologize for any conveniences this may cause.

A Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is required to identify and minimize the risks associated with a worker's duties. A JHA is used to document and review these risks with the worker.

In order to complete this task, EOHSS has created a Job Hazard Analysis Online Tool. Please use the button to the right to access this portal. Step-by-step instructions to complete a JHA are available here.

NOTE: Employees accessing the JHA portal off-campus will need to enter through the McMaster VPN.

Directions to access the VPN can be found here. If assistance is required, please contact the UTS Customer Service desk at ext. 24357.
