  • Avoiding risks;
  • Evaluating the risks which cannot be avoided;
  • Combating the risks at source;
  • Adapting the work to the individual, especially as regards the design of workplaces, the choice of work equipment and the choice of working and production methods, with a view, in particular, to alleviating monotonous work and work at a predetermined work-rate and to reducing their effect on health;
  • Adapting to technical progress;
  • Replacing the dangerous by the non-dangerous or the less dangerous;
  • Developing a coherent overall prevention policy which covers technology, organisation of work, working conditions, social relationships and the influence of factors relating to the working environment;
  • Giving collective protective measures priority over individual protective measures; and
  • Giving appropriate instructions to employees.
