Engineering Controls

Ensuring that your employees and your visitors remain safe when they are at the workplace, you have to focus your energy into integrating measures for controlling slips, trips and falls. We’ll show you some of the control measures available for these kinds of hazards at work. There are engineering controls which include the following: 

  • Using barriers to isolate a hazard
  • Using barriers to isolate a person
  • Guardrails
  • Handrails
  • Adequate Lighting (minimize glare and contrast)
  • Appropriate drainage
  • Slip resistant flooring
  • Reduce slopes of surfaces
  • Surface free of holes and obstructions
