Workplace Accidents and Deaths Continue to Decline, Reports

Increased safety requirements have contributed significantly to this decline and the trend is expected to continue as workplace safety measures improve, JSABuilder announces

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports workplace injuries and fatalities continue to decline. Roughly 2.9 million nonfatal injuries and illnesses occurred on the job in 2016, 48,500 fewer than were reported in 2015 by private employers. This decline follows a trend that has been seen since 2004, with 2012 being the only year showing an increase. However, this does not take into account fatal injuries and illnesses and nearly one-third of these injuries and illnesses were serious and lead to the worker missing one or more days. As a result, employers cannot become complacent and need to ensure they are completing their hazard identification and control. With the help of JSABuilder (, this task becomes easier.

OSHA declares the Job Hazard Analysis, also known as Job Safety Analysis, "is likely to result in fewer worker injuries and illnesses; safer, more effective work methods; reduced workers’ compensation costs; and increased worker productivity." Every employer desires this, as it helps to keep their operational costs down while ensuring minimal interruption in normal daily operations. Companies find completing this paperwork takes less time when JSABuilder ( is utilized.

"The program comes with questions designed to help each user create a Job Safety Analysis that is both thoughtful and comprehensive. The program may be customized to meet the needs of the organization to ensure the information gathered is relevant and actionable. Furthermore, the knowledge gained may be shared across the organization," Nicole K., spokesperson for JSABuilder, reports.

A Job Hazard Analysis, Job Safety Analysis, and Activity Hazard Analysis are all the same thing. They are nothing more than a technique that analyzes a job to identify any hazards associated with a job or task. The relationship between the worker, his or her tools, the work environment, and the task are all examined during the process, so the company may take steps to reduce or eliminate these risks. The program makes this task less complicated.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recognizes job safety analysis or job hazard analysis as being "a very effective means of helping reduce incidents, accidents, and injuries in the workplace." The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in their safety and health requirements manual EM381-1-1 requires that contractors and USACE personnel perform an Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA). The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), under 30 CFR 250.1911, requires that offshore operators "ensure the development and implementation of a job safety analysis (operations/task level) for all of a company's facilities."
