Under California law, every employer has an obligation to provide a safe workplace, and every employee has an obligation to act safely.
A common mistake employers make is to purchase a model or generic IIPP and then fail to tailor it to their individual workplace. The written program is a necessary part of complying with the IIPP requirement, but the safety practices workers actually follow make the difference between having an accident and avoiding one. This is what compliance is really about!
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Describe California, Injury and Illness Prevention Program requirement
- List the elements included in every workplace, Injury and Illness Prevention Program
- Specify employee, supervisor and employer IIPP responsibilities
