The pre job hazard assessment is a document that outlines the possibilities of hazards and risk factors that may be present in the respective work environment. Safety is an important factor for living beings and it is obvious for all to be concerned regarding the same. Any job should provide minimum protection to its employees and workers, and not just to the employer. Hence an assessment of the hazards present is important to be conducted, prior to the job initialization.
