    The 'Activity Name' is a mandatory field and must be entered before submitting the JHA.

  17. Select 'Choose File' and add notes under Review and Comments
  18. The JHA Review Checklist puts in place a trackable checklist to ensure specific requirements have been met prior to the submission of a JHA. Each item is answered ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ by selecting the appropriate tick-box. Where a ‘No’ is recorded, further information is to be added in the ‘Details’ box. To set up the JHA Review Checklist, see Administration > How do I configure a checklist for when I am reviewing a JHA?
