Elimination The most effective control measure is to eliminate the practice of dangerous or hazardous work. For example, rather than the work non-energized, energized, and eliminates the important electrical risk. WHS rule is a reason to ban the subject of the current electrical work to a specific exception. Substitution To reduce the risk to replace the dangerous processes and material 1 to be so dangerous, you will eventually risk. For example, it might not be reasonable to run in order to eliminate completely energized electrical work. However, it be necessary, (either because of legally permissible Is) to work energized electrical components, it is possible to cut off the power supply of the surrounding components. Isolation Possible to prevent the workers in contact with sources of electrical accidents, and reduces the associated risks. Engineering control In order to prevent a security or electric shock, install a residual current device, for example, for insulation, in order to minimize the risk, please use the engineering measures. Administrative control Management control is to establish exclusion zone, the warning signs and the use of the authorization, for example, in order to control the risk to provide appropriate and sufficient training, including the use of safe work practices. Personal protective equipment (PPE) The PPE, protective glasses, insulated gloves, helmet, and contains the apron and respiratory protective equipment. PPE should be evaluated for the work to be done. If you are working with energized equipment, PPE must be able to protect the user from the maximum of the positive energy that can be used in the work site. Management controls and PPE are, to change the hazard itself does not do anything. They are dependent on the people who behave as expected, and requires a high level of oversight. 4. Manual handling

Manual handling, one of the items, lowering lifting, carrying, what about the move by pulling or pushing. Although the weight of the item is an important factor, many other factors, can create the risk of damage. Manual handling damage is part of the broad group of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDS). The term "musculoskeletal disorder", injury of the joints and other tissues in the upper / lower limbs or back, covers the damage or failure. Control measures Substitutive - in addition to the low-risk, replace the danger instead of a bag, for example, used 20 kilograms of cement 40 kg bag of. Isolate - to isolate the danger from the endangered person. Engineering controls - To minimize the risk of engineering, for example, it means that to provide an adjustable work station to avoid reaching or bending unnecessary.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
