This paper makes the case that to achieve risk reduction effectively: the first steps are to identify and evaluate the hazards and assess the risks deriving from them; then, a logically supported, feasible, hierarchical series of control measures should be undertaken to reduce risks; and the risk reduction measures should be encompassed within a sound problem solving technique. The combination of the hierarchy of controls and the problem solving technique is called The Safety Decision Hierarchy… Expand
