Prevention through Design (PtD) addresses occupational safety and health needs in the design and redesign processes to prevent or minimize the work-related hazards and risks associated with the construction, manufacture, use, maintenance, and disposal of facilities, materials, and equipment. One of the goals is to educate designers, engineers, machinery and equipment manufacturers, environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals, business leaders, and workers to understand and implement PtD methods and apply this knowledge and skills to the design and re-design of new and existing facilities, processes, equipment, tools, and organization of work.
