Improving job hazard analysis and pre-task planning in electrical construction: A workers’ perspective
August 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This webinar is hosted by CPWR – The Center for Construction Research and Training
Pre-task planning and job hazard analysis (JHA) can serve an important role in proactively recognizing and addressing hazards to prevent work-related incidents. However, they are primarily based on compliance and typically lack the input of the workers performing the tasks. To improve the effectiveness of pre-task planning and JHA, it is critical they include more detailed task-specific information — particularly from the workers’ perspective — and provide evidence-based solutions that will create safer working conditions. Please join us to learn how a current CPWR research project strives to fill the gap between current and best practices for planning, particularly in the high-risk trade of electrical construction (covered in part in the new paper, High-Risk Electrical Tasks & Contributing Work Factors).
