"Prevention through Design" (PtD) is a concept that resonates in a very positive way with environmental, health, and safety (EHS) professionals. It is a sensible and useful approach in assessing and addressing workplace hazards and risks. But to move from agreeing in principle with PtD, to implementing it in practice can be a daunting task. This paper offers an approach that will help EHS practitioners to incorporate PtD methods into their organization's design and redesign processes. The paper highlights NIOSH's Plan for the National PtD Initiative and discusses what safety professionals, industrial hygienists and other EHS personnel need to know and understand about PtD methods, the design/redesign process, and key elements for successful PtD implementation.
