A Job Safety and Environmental Analysis (JSEA) is a written document that sets out the high risk work activities to be carried out at a workplace, the hazards and risks arising from these activities and the measures to be put in place to control the risks. A JSEA considers the environmental as well as health hazards. Its primary purpose is to help supervisors and workers implement and monitor the control measures established at the workplace to ensure high risk work is carried out safely.
An example of a JSEA can be found here.
