The Hierarchy
of Safety Priorities

When a litigation support project enabled us to collaborate with a safety specialist firm, we learned that there are five priorities for controlling workplace safety:

  • Priority one is to eliminate the hazard.
  • Application of safeguarding technology the second priority.
  • Third is the use of warning signs.
  • Safety training comes next.
  • Last but not least is the prescription of personal protection devices.
