Hierarchy of controls

National Institutes of Occupational Safety and Health recommends applying a hierarchy of controls to mitigate risk of airborne contaminants resulting for aerosol generating procedures (AGPs). While no single system can fully
mitigate risk, the use of well-designed engineering controls, as a part of a multi-tiered safety strategy and independent working interactions, can significantly reduce worker exposure to hazardous aerosols. Nederman offers a highly effective,
source capture aerosol control solution that aligns with relevant health and safety organization recommendations.

Solution

Ambient air cleaning techniques used by some does not remove the immediate worker exposure to aerosols. Substitution of the aerosols for something else is not possible in the dentist industry. And to eliminate the source, to remove the patient or the dentist is not possible either. Engineering control is the way to go. Engineering Controls are favored over administrative and personal protective equipment (PPE) for controlling existing worker exposures in the workplace because they are designed to remove the hazard at the source, before it comes in contact with the worker. The operating costs and total cost of ownership are frequently lower and can provide a cost savings in other areas of the process.
