Task Analysis

A Task Analysis is a document to help identify hazards for each step of the work you are doing and decide on how you will control the critical risks.

When carrying out repetitive tasks it is not necessary to do a new TA each time as long as the prepared TA is relevant to the work being done and understood by all involved in the work.

To complete a TA carry out the following:

  • Identify each step of the task from beginning to end
  • List the hazards relevant to each step of the task on the TA form
  • Choose the most effective risk controls. If possible always choose controls that eliminate the risks
  • Inform all workers of your chosen risk controls and any expectations around these
