    ELIMINATE THE HAZARD: Completely remove the hazard from the workplace so that it is not there.
    SUBSTITUTION: Replace the material or process with a less hazardous one. For example, you could substitute mercury thermometers with spirit thermometers.
    ISOLATE THE HAZARD: Place a barrier or similar between the hazard and people within the workplace e.g. a fence surrounding the hazard.
    ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Install or using additional machinery such as local exhaust ventilation to control the risk. Possibly by placing guarding over dangerous items of machinery. For example, use guards on compression testing machines.
    ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROLS: Conduct regular safety briefings. Provide training. Perform risk assessments. Increase safety awareness signage.
    PERSONAL PROTECTIVE: PPE is seen as a ‘last line of defence’ to protect a worker if the above measures have failed (in most cases). PPE may be used as a temporary control measure until other alternatives are installed. In most cases a combination of the above controls AND PPE are chosen to effectively control the risks hazards pose to the workplace and those in it.
