Title: "Trautman Job Hazard Analysis"
Guest Speaker: Karen Litman CP(c), BSc, MSc(RS) RJCHC
Outline: There are risks inherent in using any machine including a Trautman. Recognizing and assessing hazards is the first step to controlling or eliminating risk. A Job Hazard Analysis ensures job hazards are identified and appropriate controls are implemented to protect all employees and learners from workplace injury and illness. The results of a job hazard analysis the Ron Joyce Children's Health Centre completed on a Trautman will be presented. These results will identify the hazards of working on a Trautman, factors that contribute to making the job hazardous as well as controls that can be used to minimize the risk of injury. Throughout the presentation will also share our process and experience in completing a job hazard analysis with the hope that you would feel confident completing a job hazard analysis in your workplace.
