Hierarchy of hazard control is a system used in industry to minimize or eliminate exposure to hazards. This concept is taught to managers in industry, to be promoted as standard practice in the workplace. It has also been used to inform public policy, in fields such as road safety.
Physical removal of the hazard is the most effective hazard control. Substitution, the second most effective hazard control, involves replacing something that produces a hazard with something that does not produce a hazard or produces a lesser hazard—for example, replacing lead-based paint with titanium white. To be an effective control, the new product must not produce unintended consequences.
Because airborne dust can be hazardous, if a product can be purchased with a larger particle size , the smaller product may effectively be substituted with the larger product. The third most effective means of controlling hazards is engineered controls. These do not eliminate hazards, but rather isolate people from hazards. Fume hoods can remove airborne contaminants as a means of engineered control. Administrative controls are changes to the way people work. Examples of administrative controls include procedure changes, employee training, and installation of signs and warning labels such as those in the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System.
Personal protective equipment PPE includes gloves, Nomex clothing, overalls, Tyvek suits, respirators , hard hats , safety glasses , high-visibility clothing , and safety footwear. PPE is the least effective means of controlling hazards because of the high potential for damage to render PPE ineffective. The hierarchy of controls is a core component of Prevention through Design , the concept of applying methods to minimize occupational hazards early in the design process.
Prevention through Design emphasizes addressing hazards at the top of the hierarchy of controls mainly through elimination and substitution at the earliest stages of project development.

Adherence to good health and safety practices and compliance with applicable health and safety regulations are a responsibility of all faculty, staff, and students.
The purpose of this procedure is to provide a process that, so far as is reasonably practicable, incorporates the identification, reporting and investigation of foreseeable hazards related to work activities for Preston Hire work places and, in consultation with workers, the timely elimination or minimisation of risks to health and safety using the Hierarchy of Risk Control. The purpose of this procedure is to ensure there is a formal process for hazard identification and risk assessment which will effectively manage the hazards that may occur within the workplace.
