A properly-composed JHA/AHA is one of the primary documents that large clients are increasingly asking to review in advance of allowing you to start work on their Project. The JHA/AHA is not an OSHA requirement however it is required by US Corp of Engineers for most work on military installations. Most of the initial JHA/AHA documents are rejected on the first or second submission for a range of common failures, which we will discuss in this Webinar. Mr. Meola has written hundreds of JHA/AHA’s and also reviewed AHA’s for NAVFAC in accordance with US ACE EM 385 for any work on military installations.

This Webinar will review the proper methodology, vocabulary, definitions and composition process for structuring a document that addresses the key elements and information needed to execute an operation. Client organizations and large General Contractors are scrutinizing these documents very closely to verify you know where the land mines and quick-sand is for whatever job you are proposing. The days of just showing up on a site and going to work are over. By submitting a well organized and job-specific JHA/AHA you will demonstrate competency before you even show up on the site.
