Accident Prevention Plan

The University’s Accident Prevention Plan (APP) covers the anticipated occupational hazards that generally apply to employees across the University. It outlines policies and procedures implemented to reduce or eliminate these hazards. Employees include staff, faculty and students or volunteers in paid permanent, part-time or seasonal positions. The APP applies to all schools, departments and organizations within the University, excluding the UW Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center.  

Job Hazard Analysis Template

 

The Job Hazard Analysis form helps you identify the hazards of a specific task. After the hazards are listed, one can identify controls to mitigate risk.

A Job Hazard Analysis helps identify required trainings and personal protective equipment needed to stay safe while doing potentially hazardous tasks. It can also be used as a communication or training tool for new employees.
