Hint

If you are going to make a JHA for a task that you are like to do over again, you are better off making a template that contains all of the job steps, and then inserting tat template into your site specific JHA. (Note you can not copy an existing site specific JHA into another job.)

A good example of this is to look at the Bricklaying to new project home template.

  1. Go to the main options
  2. Select an existing "JHA" template
  3. Open for read only
  4. Type in Brick in the bottom Keyword search box (Search all industry types and all Industry Specifics)
  5. Click in the line that say, "Bricklaying to new project home"
  6. Click ok
  7. Review the template
