Prevention through Design (PtD) Workshop

The first Prevention through Design (PtD) Workshop was held in Washington DC July 9-11, 2007 to launch a National Initiative aimed at eliminating occupational hazards and controlling risks to workers “at the source” or as early as possible in the life cycle of items or workplaces. PtD includes the design of work premises, structures, tools, plants, equipment, machinery, substances, work methods, and systems of work.


Below are links to the agendas that were used at the workshop. The first one is a general agenda, and the second one is a more detailed set of agendas for each industry sector for the Day 2 breakout sessions.
