Show me the Answer
Correct answer is:
  • (D)  Engineering, work practice, and administrative controls do not provide sufficient protection against hazards
Explanation:
OSHA recommends controlling the hazard at its source as the ideal way to protect workers against hazards. Engineering or workplace practice controls should be used on the basis of the hazard present at a workplace. However, when work practice, engineering, and administrative controls do not offer sufficient protection, employers must provide workers with personal protective equipment (PPE) and make sure workers use them.
