Maintenance Strategies to Control Hazards


There are two general types of maintenance processes needed to control hazards:

Preventive maintenance to make sure equipment and machinery operates safely and smoothly.

Corrective maintenance to make sure equipment and machinery gets back into safe operation
quickly.

Hazard Tracking Procedures


An essential part of any day-to-day safety and health effort is the correction of hazards that occur in
spite of your overall prevention and control program. Documenting these corrections is
equally
important, particularly for larger sites.

Documentation is important because:

It keeps management and safety staff aware of the status of long-term correction items;

It provides a record of what occurred, should the hazard reappear at a later date; and

It provides timely and accurate information that can be supplied to an employee who reported the
hazard.

Final Words
The hierarchy of controls is the standard system of strategies to effectively eliminate workplace hazards.
Remember, the first question to ask when considering ways to eliminate a
hazard is,
"can we apply
engineering controls?" You may need to use a combination of strategies to effectively eliminate the

hazard. Whatever it takes, do it. You are not just saving a life....you are
saving a father, a mother, a son,
or a daughter....you are saving a family. It's worth the effort!

There's a lot of information in this module, and it may take some time for the concepts to sink in, but not
to worry,
go ahead and complete the MODULE QUIZ.
