Control measure – Reduce exposure to hazards

Control Measure Knowledge

If it is not possible to fully eliminate the hazard, then exposure should be reduced to limit the risk as far as reasonably practicable. Examples of ways in which this can be achieved include:

  • Reducing the amount of time spent in the hazard area and avoid repeated exposure
  • Increasing the distance from the hazard
  • Specialist resources and vehicles to transport people and equipment
