Program Hazard Analysis (PHA), No. 680-009
This evaluation process is used to systematically identify, assess, and resolve hazards associated with
program activities that support the vision, mission, and goals of the Boy Scouts of America. An analysis
should be conducted for new program activities, for modifications to or expansions of existing activities,
or for existing program activities with newly recognized hazards.
