The Hierarchy of Controls

Top O' Michigan Solutions is dedicated to helping you make your workplace safer so everyone can make it home to their families.  This begins with identifying and mitigating exposures to occupational hazards.  The hierarchy of controls is a strategy for safety that singles out hazards, before work starts.  According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the hierarchy starts with the controls that are perceived to be the most effective.  We agree that safety and elimination of hazards is the most important and Top O' Michigan will help round our your insurance solution with the right coverage to finance the risk.

As defined by NIOSH, it flows as follows:

  • Elimination – Physically remove the hazard
  • Substitution – Replace the hazard
  • Engineering controls – Isolate people from the hazard
  • Administrative controls – Change the way people work
  • Personal protective equipment– Protect the worker with PPE
