dc.descriptionThe Prevention through Design or “PtD” initiative is a design process that aims to avoid hazards, illnesses, and fatalities in the workplace prior to their occurrence. In order to mitigate the occurrence of injuries it is necessary to identify the hazards, assess the risks and in turn develop an alternative or solution to the problem within the design process.en_US
