Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

A Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is an Environment, Safety, and Health (ES&H) Submittal generated either using the Work Planning & Control Tool (WP&C tool) or the online LLNL TIP Tool to help facilitate a structured, task-based approach to identifying and analyzing the tasks, hazards, and controls necessary to safely perform work at the LLNL. If your Subcontract Area Hazards Control List (SAHCL) contains a Work Control Document Number, follow the WP&C Tool process below; otherwise use the TIP Tool to generate your JHA.

Work Planning & Control Tool

The WP&C Tool is an internal application, the Subcontractor will work directly with a LLNS Work Planner to develop the JHA which will then be entered into the WP&C Tool by the Work Planner. To facilitate the development of the JHA and the Subcontractor’s understanding of the environmental, safety & health requirements at LLNL, the following tools are available to the Subcontractor as part of the WP&C Tool process.

  • Draft JHA
    When included in the solicitation package, Subcontractors may use the draft JHA as a starting point to generate their project specific JHA. Subcontractors will work collaboratively with the LLNS Technical Representative and WP&C Work Planner to finalize the project JHA based on Subcontractor means and methods. First time users should review the applicable JHA development guide for instructions on how to complete a JHA in collaboration with the assigned LLNS Technical Representative and LLNS WP&C Work Planner. Subcontractors are encouraged but not required to use the draft JHA included in the solicitation. Alternatively, subcontractors may use the blank JHA template to draft its JHA.
  • Pre-Analyzed Task Libraries
    LLNL develop a set of pre-analyzed tasks (PAT) that Subcontractors may use to develop its JHA. If a task is not covered by a PAT, Subcontractors are to work with a LLNS Technical Representative and LLNS WP&C Work Planner to create a custom PAT or Task. There are currently two PAT libraries available for subcontractors to use.


As applicable, non-construction subcontractors may generate a JHA using the below LLNL Tip Tool link. First time users will need to establish an account and complete the User Registration for access. The Subcontract Area Hazards Control List (SAHCL) number is needed for registration and is found on the SAHCL document incorporated into the subcontract. This number must also be listed as part of the Project Title for tracking purposes while generating a JHA.

NOTE: Whether the JHA is developed in the WP&C Tool or the TIP Tool, a copy of the completed JHA shall also be provided to the LLNS Contract Analyst.
