The aspect of administrating controls is integral to the application of occupational hygiene and consists of a hierarchal process in order to determine the best course of action. At the top of the pyramid is considering the possibility of eliminating the presence or magnitude of the hazard. Following this, a substitution that can reduce the hazard is the next step to consider.

Next is the modification of either the material or procedure. Engineering controls may be used to prevent exposure, and part of this as well as administrative and work procedures is the use of warnings to indicate the need for and status of control. Finally, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) also forms part of this process.

Here at WG Safety, we provide occupational hygiene services, performing exposure monitoring for both physical and chemical hazards in a varied range of workplace settings. Using modern state-of-the-art calibrated equipment, all assessments are performed by qualified occupational hygienists.
