Updating your job hazard analysis
But JHAs add risk assessment to JSAs with an evaluation of risk for each step and determination of likelihood and severity.

Many people think that JHA and Job Safety Analysis (JSA) are the same, but there are slight differences.
According to a definition in a Safety Health magazine article, JSAs consider only the following three elements: steps necessary to do the job, hazards associated with each step, and safety measures for avoiding the hazards.
