Common Problems With JSAs

Graham Marshall - Thursday, December 13, 2012

At the Risk Tool Box, we'd like to think that we've been at the forefront of promoting the proper use of JSA in the oil-field for the last 15-years.

We've seen just about every failing in JSA that there is to see; and we've been involved in helping numerous organizations to improve their JSA capability. 

We know that JSA is one of the most important risk management tools.  That's where we got the name for our business!

So this safety alert from APPEA shows a common failing in JSA which has been highlighted by the folks at Chevron.

The failure involves a lack of reassessment of the work following changes in the way the job was organized.

There is always a temptation amongst many workers to "get her done", and this leads to rushing-in without the necessary re-assessment when a job changes.  Revisiting the JSA is critical to maintain the currency of the control mechanisms.

Chevron needs to encourage its workforce to take the time, plan, and re-plan if things change.  To read the rest of the safety alert, see below.
