Accident Prevention: Applying The ANSI-ASSE Z590.3 Standard For Effective Hazard And Risk Management

About This Course:
The ANSI Z590.3 standard, “Prevention through Design: Guidelines for Addressing Occupational Risks in Design and Redesign Processes,” provides an efficient approach and roadmap for achieving successful results when designing or redesigning safety hazard controls.

The American Society of Safety Engineers-approved standard focuses on identifying hazards at the earliest stages of a new operation, eliminating the need for developing engineering, administrative, and personal protective equipment (PPE) controls later on.

ANSI Z590.3 focuses specifically on the avoidance, elimination, reduction, and control of occupational safety and health hazards and risks in the design and redesign process. The belief is that if the hazard is addressed early on, it can be most cost effectively addressed. The standard also provides a framework for comprehensive design and redesign that can help safety managers achieve amazing results in the area of hazard and risk management.
