Assignment, Part 2
Choose a job to observe and about which to make an analysis. Some examples of jobs to observe include: someone lifting pallets with a fork truck, anyone performing work at a construction site, someone working on the highway, someone unloading a truck in shipping and receiving, any job which involves some sort of manual work. Ask permission of the worker and/or his Supervisor to make your observations if you are in the vicinity. Identify the steps, etc. The job you choose must be discrete, that is, it must be a task that you can observe from start to finish, not just a man working throughout a time period.
1. Fill out the JSA form provided in Excel according to instructions in your text and video.
2. Exercises will be graded on conformance with assignment including completeness of steps in the job, comprehensiveness in identifying potential hazards and relevance of suggestions for recommended actions. In all, the JSA must seem to be practical and relevant to the worker performing the task. You may or may not want to share your preliminary observations with the person being observed.
3. You are to turn in your JSA to complete your assignment.
