Why Are WE here?

  1. To provide information on the Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP);
  2. To introduce the program;
  3. To implement the IIPP to all staff; and to help insure safety at all jobsites.

 

What is the Injury and Illness Prevention Program?

  • The Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is a basic written workplace safety program. Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations (T8CCR) section 3203, requires every employer to develop and implement an effective IIPP. An effective IIPP improves the safety and health in your workplace and reduces costs by good management and employee involvement.

 

The 8 Injury and Illness Prevention Program Elements Are:

  • Responsibility
  • Compliance
  • Communication
  • Hazard Assessment
  • Accident/Exposure Investigation
  • Hazard Correction
  • Training and Instruction
  • Recordkeeping
