Hazard controls are procedures that to protect people from being exposed to substances or systems as well as the processes instituted to monitor individuals’ exposure and their health to hazards. Three categories of hazard controls exist and these include elimination/substitution controls, administrative and engineering controls. An example of elimination/substitution control is where a hazard is an object that can be removed or replaced such as a chemical spills. Examples of administrative controls comprise of work policies and practices e.g. wearing of protective equipment such as helmets, providing proper ventilation of buildings, timing of work and machinery etc. Forms of engineering controls consist of design of machinery and buildings etc. (Goetsch 120-250).

Modes of contaminants entry into a body include: ingestion where an individual eats or drinks a chemical by accident for example through water or food. Inhalation where airborne contaminant e.g. fumes and gases are inhaled directly into the lungs. Absorption where a contaminant E.g. a salt, penetrates the skin and lastly injection where a person may accidentally prick themselves with a contaminated object thus injecting themselves with a contaminant, e.g. cuts by metals and moving parts of machines (Goetsch, 120-250).
