Injury and Illness Prevention Programs (IIPP)

Cal/OSHA, as of July 1, 1991, requires every employer in California to establish, implement and maintain an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). For facilities with more than ten (10) employees, the IIPP must be written and put into practice. The Program shall meet the requirements of 8 CCR Section 3203. IIPP’s vary greatly depending upon the facility’s operations. Risk Management Professionals works closely with facilities to develop procedures that fit the facility and offer the easiest implementation. The common elements of an IIPP include, but are not limited to:

  • Hazard Communication
  • Hazardous Waste Operations
  • Electrical Safety
  • Hearing Conservation
  • First Aid and CPR
  • Emergency Procedures (Fire Extinguishers, etc.)
  • Fall Protection
  • Confined Space Entry
  • Hot Work
  • Forklift and Other Industrial Vehicle Operations
  • Respiratory Protection Awareness
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Lock-out/Tag-out
  • Machine Tool Operations
  • Facility Site Specific Training
  • Supervisor Safety Training
  • Ergonomics
  • Heat Stress

In addition to developing a written IIPP, Risk Management Professionals can also assist facilities in implementing monthly Safety Meetings and/or Safety Committees.
