Step 5: Option Appraisal
Here different technical and operational options need to be assessed for appropriateness and cost-effectiveness. Options to be considered include:
- Scope: Whether to implement company and location specific control programmes or to expand into community-wide, ‘outside the fence’ control programmes.
- Partnership approach: Whether to plan a programme that will be delivered using the companies own health, safety and environmental personnel, to partner with the local health system, or to partner with other implementing organisations.
