Here are a few approaches:
1) Vinegar can be used as a biodegradable weed killer, and I found that it does kill small weeds. Never tried it on poison oak, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work.
2) Gloves, hazmat suit, trashbags. Pull the poison oak out, roots and all, and then put it in the bag and seal tight. Then throw away whatever you are wearing and don't allow it to touch you.
3) Burning. Usually not a good idea, especially since the smoke it poisonous. But with the right amount of heat, you can kill the plant without actually causing it to burn.
4) Goats. If you wanted to go all out war on the poison oak, find a person who will let you borrow a goat. For some reason, goats just LOVE to eat poison oak. And it doesn't harm them at all.
