Prevention is the best way to deal with job-related hazards – by getting rid of them. This is the third step* in a process to identify hazards and brainstorm ways to prevent or reduce them. The front page of this poster makes clear that prevention protects everyone, while limiting the harm with controls relies more on individuals. Users can determine where the measures in their job fit now, and what would be more effective and really preventive. The back page describes the types of measures, from most effective to least effective.
