*Elimination - Removing the hazard from a workplace. This is the most effective control measure (e.g., lower various devices or instruments, such as meters or valves to the height level of the individual, instead of servicing such devices or instruments at heights).
*Prevention - Isolating or separating the hazard from the general work areas (e.g., same level barriers such as guardrails, walls, or covers.)
*Engineering Controls - If the hazard cannot be eliminated, isolated, or separated, engineering control is the next-preferred measure to control the risk (e.g., design change or use of different equipment or techniques such as aerial lift equipment).
*Administrative Controls - This includes introducing new work practices that reduce the risk of a person falling (e.g., erecting warning signs or restricting access to certain areas).13-4(5) Personal Protective Systems and Equipment - These shall be used after other control measures (such as eliminating or isolating a fall hazard) are determined not to be practical, or when a secondary system is needed (e.g., when it is necessary to increase protection)
