Indoor Environmental Exposure Control Measures
Use the right controls to eliminate or minimise exposure and protect occupants
Remove & get rid of the hazardous source completely.
Eliminating the source is the most effective way to manage exposure risks.
Where it is not practical to eliminate hazardous source,
Exposure risk must be minimised.
Use one of the following:
Engineering – change the design to minimise volume and duration
Substitute the hazardous source – replace the source with less hazardous
Isolate the hazard – separate the source from occupants
Minimise any remaining exposure risk by using administrative controls.
Administration controls instructions and signs
Eg. House keeping
If risks remain, the possible impact on people
Must be controlled using PPE.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Eg rubber gloves, long sleeves, safety glasses, hair cover. This is the least
Effective way to manage exposure risks.
