- placing of a barrier or limiter between the hazard and an individual
- Electrical insulation


What is Ventilation (Engineering) used to control?

- potentially hazardous airborne substances


What are the 2 methods of Ventilation (Engineering) controls of hazard?

- Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) - remove contaminants at point of generation
- General or Dilution Ventilation - for large volumes of heated air or low concentration of low toxicity contamination


How often should Safety and Occupational Health Training be conducted?
