Job Safety (JS)
Creating a safe workplace.
Based on the TWI instructional model, Job Safety training (JS) is a complementary program focused on environmental health and safety. JS provides a framework for supervisors to engage employees in identifying potential hazards and eliminating them in conjunction with their training and knowledge in OSHA and EPA regulations. JS was developed in Japan and, although it was not part of the original TWI program, it plays a critical role in industry today. This program teaches supervisors a method to analyze the chain of events leading to accidents and hazardous situations. Root causes are identified and remediated to "break the chain." JS stresses that the relationship of the supervisor and employees plays a pivotal role in a safe and environmentally responsible workplace.
