Committee Title: Competence & Certification in the Safety Profession
Standard Title: Prevention through Design: Guidelines for Addressing Occupational Hazards & Risks in Design & Redesign Processes
Scope: This standard provides guidance on including prevention through design concepts within an occupational safety and health management system. Through the application of these concepts, decisions pertaining to occupational hazards and risks can be incorporated into the process of design and redesign of work premises, tools, equipment, machinery, substances and work processes, including their construction, manufacture, use, maintenance and ultimate disposal or reuse. This standard provides guidance for a lifecycle assessment and design model that balances environmental and occupational safety and health goals over the lifespan of a facility, process or product.

This standard complements but does not replace performance objectives existing in other specific standards and procedures.

The goals of applying prevention through design concepts in an occupational setting are to:

This standard was developed to provide consistent procedures for addressing occupational hazards and risks in the design and redesign processes and to replace Technical Report ASSE TR-Z790.001-2009.
