Risk Mitigation Strategy
CMU's risk mitigation strategy follows a classic “hierarchy of controls” approach, which is a widely accepted system from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) used to minimize exposure to hazards. Together, through a combination of Containment, Substitution, Engineering Controls, Administrative Controls and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), we can substantially reduce the risk.
