Job Safety Breakdowns

Know the job; know the hazards

In a Job Safety Breakdown (JSB), a specific job is examined to identify potential hazards that could be encountered during completion. The objective is to get to the point where everyone on your worksites can complete their assigned jobs in the safest way possible.

A JSB involves the following steps:

  1. Selecting the job.
  2. Breaking down the job into a series of tasks.
  3. Identifying all potential hazards in each of those tasks.
  4. Defining controls – Engineering, Administrative or PPE – that eliminate or mitigate those hazards.

To find JSBs relating to log hauling and to see an example of a log hauling and lowbedding procedures manual (courtesy of Interfor) review the documents below.
