Background: Emergency ward nurses exposed to occupational hazards. Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is a way to identify and assessment job-related risks and provide control strategies to reduce risks. The purpose of this study was to evaluate Job Safety Analysis and compare the effectiveness of control (engineering and management) interventions in emergency nursing.
Methods: This is an interventional study performed to assessment the risk by Job Safety Analysis (JSA) in three groups of nurses Triage، Group Leader and Trauma-Hospitalization hospital emergency department of Yazd Shahid Rahnamoon Hospital in 1397. First, the initial risk assessment code (pre-intervention) estimated, then the engineering and management controls implemented and the secondary risk assessment code (after intervention) calculated after three months.
Results: According to the results of the study، risk of musculoskeletal disorders with risk score of 20, identified as the highest risk in all three emergency nursing groups، also mean risk assessment code for the occupational hazards in nurses calculated which were in the unacceptable risk range and reached an acceptable level after performing management and engineering interventions.
Conclusion: results of this study showed that the implementation of engineering and management interventions had a positive effect on reducing the mean risk assessment code، also shown that the risk assessment code for occupational hazards reduced to Almost the same amount with the implementation of each engineering and management intervention. This indicates the same role of these interventions in reducing the risk level.
