Control Measures
Eliminate the use of the harmful substance and use of a safer one. For instance, swap high VOC oil-based paint for a lower VOC water-based paint
1 of 5
Use a safer form of the product. Is the product available ready-mixed? Is there a lower strength option that will still do the job?
Change the work method to emit less of the substance. For instance, applying paint with a brush releases fewer VOC into the air than spraying paint. Wet grinding produces less dust then dry grinding.
2 of 5
Enclose the work area so that the substance does not escape. This can mean setting up a tented area or closing doors.
Use extraction or filtration (e.g. a dust bag) in the work area.
3 of 5
Keep operatives in the area to a minimum
Employers must provide appropriate PPE.
