The Montana Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit

The University of Montana

As of September 2012, CRU requires that federal scientists, students, and all employees (research associates, field technicians, data technicians, etc.) of each Cooperative Research Unit, complete a Job Hazard Analyses (JHA) and training.  After completion of a JHA, each employee is to review it with his/her supervisor.  It is up to the supervisor to track compliance with both generating JHAs and completing and documenting the required training they identify.

Below is a link to a Powerpoint presentation that walks people through setting up an account within "Digital Measures" and through the process of generating a JHA report.
