California requires that all employers carry out effective injury and illness prevention activities on the job. The requirements include a written Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) with specific elements that include assessing hazards on the job, implementing control methods to prevent accidents and illnesses, maintaining safety records, and providing an effective training program for workers. IIPP-related violations continue to be among the most frequently cited by Cal/OSHA.
“Many small business owners do not know where to turn for help when they receive a citation for a deficient IIPP,” said DIR Director Christine Baker. “This program reaches out to small businesses to inform them of what can really work to protect their employees on the job. We are working with partners in workplace safety to keep prevention at the top of everyone’s agenda.”
