Job Safety Analysis is a key and primary HSE tool, and getting the implementation process right is vital to any industry.

After more than 12 years researching and refining this module we fully understand that no single process meets all industry requirements. However the format that we’ve finally designed has been built on requests from the likes of OSHA, DNV, ABS, US Coast Guard, UK HSE, Australian Mines Department and probably 80% of all of the major oil companies. In simple language, there is a strong reason for landing where we have.

However in saying this, it is vital to communicate that while Locstatt can be perceived as a total mobile and data integration system, it also has the ability at the same time to facilitate paper based processes, and there is no better example of this than JSA’s.

JSA’s are now commonly required as they play a vital part in the risk mitigation tools that we have at our disposal. However if not managed correctly they also have, through poor implementation process, the potential to delay tasks, which then naturally drives up costs or even worse results in poor JSA’s due to operational time pressures.


JSA Library

The Locstatt JSA Library tool offers a Comprehensive Database of Lessons Learned that Apply to You and Your Industry! Instead of starting with a completely blank page, why not offer a formal library highlighting not only the step by step process but also a history of when things did not go right, with pictures and video. You can guarantee that your crews will be alert to what you are trying to communicate.

So, what is a JSA?

It varies in the amount of detail however the JSA Creation Process can be summarized as:

  • Breaking actions down into the smaller tasks that make up the complete job.
  • Identifying hazards associated with each task.
  • Ranking the hazards on a common risk matrix without mitigation controls.
  • Designing and agreeing on mitigation controls for identified hazards and…
  • Finally ranking the hazards on the same risk matrix in order to demonstrate the risk has been reduced to an acceptable level.

A key consideration for your JSA Creation Process is the ability to swap between mobile technology and paper & pen via Word docs & Excel. The combination of both mediums enhances the Locstatt System allowing the best of both worlds as explained below:

Locstatt- Job Safety Analysis
1. The ability to choose and print from a comprehensive JSA Library as opposed to a blank sheet of paper.

2. Allowing site supervisors access to the wealth of knowledge accumulated over years of practical experience regarding known hazards on specific operations.

3. Even if starting on paper, the Identification of hazard and mitigation controls with a quick cross reference in the JSA Library is vital.

Distinctive Characteristics include:

Locstatt- Job Safety Analysis
1. Each company can specify a complete set of Risk Matrices needed for specific jobs.

2. A complete list of Groups and PPE elements are available to create the entire JSA library.

3. Each Company can create their own library of JSA’s categorized under departments, job titles and task categories. Each JSA can then be created with all The Hazards, Hazard Effects, Control measures, HSE Elements, Risks and Hazard Identifications Tools, and this entire Library will be available in the Mobile application to Create JSA Verifications and JSA Meetings.
4. Each JSA can draw from a Gallery of photos. You can attach these photos to show Safe and At Risk actions of each Control Measure. Using this feature with a JSA on the Workstation Mobile App makes the task of discussing the step by step safety topics in a Meeting simple and clear. Each JSA also offers the ability to link videos that explain or emphasize a specific Task.
5. Each JSA can be reviewed using the Locstatt web system and also exported to PDF for emailing or printing when required.
6. Contractors can share their own JSA’s with Owners, then Users can go ahead and perform JSA Verifications and JSA Meetings at the Owner’s facility.

The JSA Meeting or Implementation Process. How is this delivered?

The Locstatt JSA module follows a predictable path for JSA Meetings. It is designed to guide your Supervisor step by step, and also detail the JSA expectations. At the end of the job, the JSA verifications are then compressed for accurate analysis.

Distinctive Characteristics include:

1. Supervisor’s can download the JSA’s ready for use, Online or Offline.
2. JSA Galleries can be downloaded to provide photos within the control measures to support discussion of Task related topics.

The entire Locstatt JSA, including Photos of Safe or At Risk actions with a step by step presentation, was automatically produced during the JSA creation process. As a result, Supervisors always look for opportunities to show this enormous visual and knowledge retention vantage point.

3. You can Create JSA Meetings using any JSA from your Library, and supervisors can see in real time how many times each crew member has performed the task.

4. At the same time you can choose any participant of the meeting and see in real time individual crew training records corresponding to their job position.

You have the ability to move through Company Customized Options that assist as memory joggers to supervisors; Equipment checks, Time checks, Qualification or Training checks, Hazard wheel etc.

5. JSA Task Debrief – what went right or what went wrong during execution of the task. This information is available to supervisors next time.
View all of the debriefs and JSA verification comments gained from in-house knowledge or while performing the same task.

6. The JSA Meetings Component offers a complete overview of charts and reports showing a detailed monthly analysis. Company Meetings can be viewed by Facility, JSA Tasks, Departments or HSE Elements, etc.

JSA Verification Process

The JSA Verification Process is a very powerful tool

5 minutes spent completing a JSA Verification can lead to a further 15 or 20 physically verified mitigation measures. Once this data is compressed and analyzed it is very easy to see which mitigation measures are consistently used, and which are not. This in turn gives supervisors clear direction & understanding for what needs to be done, and where they need to focus their JSA discussions.

Distinctive Characteristics include:

1. Firstly select the Company/ Facility/ Location and the Task you will perform. Then simply assess if the employees are wearing the correct PPE for the JSA selected.
2. Secondly you can determine if each control measure being used is following the correct procedure . You can take photos, add comments, and also make a note of all employees involved in the JSA Verification.

3. The Company Performance Overview report offers a Verification Matrix that shows a complete overview of all control measures and hazards.

4. The Web Application also delivers multiple Reports showing a comprehensive analysis of Compressed Data by Department, Company, Client, JSA task, Facilities and Locations, etc.

5. Companies can set monthly Goals for the number of JSA’s expected per Facility.


That is how our Locstatt JSA system has been designed to work so let’s schedule a time to discuss.
