Hazard Controls

Five Hazard Controls in the Workplace

by

There are five kinds of hazard control within the hierarchy of controls in the construction workplace. Different controls are applied to different situations, and there are times in which using certain controls is not possible. Most of the time, though, it is recommended to operate according to the hierarchy of controls. They are listed from one to five, with one being the least effective and five being the most effective.

More information on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) hierarchy of controls is available here.
