Abstract: 

Occupational injuries and fatalities occur every day in workplaces. They often occur because employees are not trained on the proper job procedures. JSA, a consistent and systematic approach, can help identify and assess risks associated with hazardous job and develop control measures.
In this approach, jobs are broken down into theirs steps, potential hazards associated with each step are identified and assessed, and then proper control measures are recommended. This research was conducted in a production factory where 45 hazards were identified and assessed through JSA, of which 14 were high-risk, 28 moderate-risk and 3 low-risk hazards.
To remove or reduce the risks, certain control measures are recommended, among which training the workers and supervising their performance continuously are the most important ones.
