What Is the Prevention Through Design Standard
The ANSI/ASSP Z590.3 standard helps safety professionals and their employers incorporate prevention through design concepts into decision-making related to the design and redesign of work premises, tools, equipment, machinery, substances and work processes.
Why Use the Prevention Through Design Standard
Safety professionals can use this standard to conduct a life-cycle assessment and develop a design model that balances occupational safety and health goals over the lifespan of a facility, process or product.
