Selecting an appropriate method to control a hazard in the workplace is not always easy. No single control measure is 100% effective against the transmission of respiratory infectious diseases. Use multiple workplace control measures in a layered approach to reduce the risk of transmission. Include public health measures such as vaccination, proper hand hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting, and wearing a mask.

Share this infographic on how the hierarchy of controls can be applied to respiratory infectious diseases in the workplace, including examples of controls for each level. Visit our Tool Kit page for additional information and resources.
