Activity, job and task analysis... help!

Post by roy gough » Wed May 16, 2018 7:29 pm

I think I've finally lost it.
I thought when I read this the first time it was going to be trouble.. now I know it is.
Can you all please help...

The NVQ question is the principles of competence , activity analysis, task analysis and safety analysis.

Have I missed something here or are three of the four not almost identical. Requirig a risk assessment to confirm the work is being done safely.

I'm sure I'm having a thick moment, but it's doing my head in and I can't find an answer (even Google came up short).
Any guidance would be great, thanks.

They are all slightly different however all look at the task in further detail to identify hidden hazards and potential for human failure.

See below link from the HSE's website which gives a bit more understanding: ... e-task.pdf
