COVID-19 and the Hierarchy of Controls

With a spike in both COVID-19 and influenza cases expected this fall, many are re-examining and shoring up their infection control processes. Healthcare providers have already made several changes this year to limit the spread of coronavirus, from plexiglass partitions to increased handwashing.
As you go over your safety measures, there is a methodology you can use to determine which steps will be the most effective: the NIOSH Hierarchy of Controls (HoC). Those rungs include:
1. Elimination
2. Substitution
3. Engineering Controls
4. Administrative Controls
5. PPE
By downloading the latest PSQH Industry Focus Report, you will learn how to optimize each of these rungs to ensure your organization is prepared!
