Hierarchy of Controls for Light Passenger Vehicle
The hierarchy of control is a system for controlling risks in the workplace. It is a step-by-step approach to eliminating or reducing risks and ranks risk controls from the highest level of protection and reliability through to the lowest and least reliable protection. Risks should be reduced to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures, in order of priority.
Eliminating the hazard and risk is the highest level of control in the hierarchy, followed by reducing the risk through substitution, isolation, and engineering controls, then reducing the risk through administrative controls. Reducing the risk with the use of protective personal equipment (PPE) is the lowest level of control
