Answer:  A JSA or Jobsite Safety Analysis (JSA) is a systematic procedure that breaks each job/task into key training sequences, identifies safety elements of each job/task step, and coaches the employee on how to avoid potential safety hazards.  The Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is a systematic procedure that breaks each job/task into key process sequences, identifies safety elements of each job/task step and coaches the employee on how to avoid potential safety hazards.

Another commonly used term for this process is called a (AHA) or Activity Hazard Analysis, Both a JSA and AHA are considered the same process with the exception that the JSA is referred to in commercial OSHA Safety compliance and the AHA is used in the EM385 1-1 governmental regulations, military, educational, VA or other government projects where the EM 385 1-1 is used as the regulation. 

The benefits of using a JSA/AHA properly Ensures consistent and safe work methods and it reduces injuries by helping employees know how to best perform a task without the likelihood of injury. It provides a form of risk identification documentation regarding the job processes and work steps and records the employee’s knowledge of the job safety requirements.

The JSA/AHA create a document that complies with many OSHA / EM 385 1-1  requirements which is the reason a digital copy that is time and date stamped is much more effective and expedient during the initial creation process but significantly better in an audit or governmental inspection process.
