However, if a guard that stops the lion from approaching the person is set up, the risk of injury is minimized. Thus, the risk of injury is determined by the size of the hazard plus the potential for contact between the hazard and a person.

HIERARCHY OF CONTROL MEASURES November 18, 2011 1. Eliminate the hazard For example, remove noisy equipment, purchase pre-cut items. If this is not practical, then 2. Substitute the hazard with something of lesser risk For example, lift smaller packages, use a less toxic chemical, electric forklift in place of petrol-driven forklift, vacuum rather than sweep If this is not practical, then 3. Isolate the hazard For example, place barriers around a spill until cleaned up, locate photocopier in separate, well ventilated room If this is not practical, then 4. Use engineering controls For example, provide a trolley to move heavy loads, place guards on moving parts or machinery If this is not practical, then 5. Use administrative controls For example, introduce job rotation, shorter task shifts, ensure equipment is maintained regularly, safe work practices, instructions and training. If this is not practical, then 6.Use personal protective clothing or equipment For example, provide hearing and ear protection, hard hats, gloves, masks. Always be alert for opportunities to have a better method of control
