What is the Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP)?
Cal/OSHA requires all employers in California to have an effective written Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). The benefits of an effective IIPP include improved workplace safety and health, better morale, increased productivity, and reduced costs of doing business.
What does the IIPP Training include?
In collaboration with the Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP) on the California Worker Occupational Safety and Health Training and Education Program (WOSHTEP), WCAHS acts as the Central Valley Resource Center and develops and delivers FREE trainings and classes in Spanish and English, tailored to agricultural employers.
WCAHS offers 2-hour IIPP trainings, during which employers:
- Identify the Cal/OSHA injury and illness prevention requirements
- Identify the elements of a successful IIPP
- Learn how to investigate work-related accidents and injuries when they occur
- Work interactively with other training participants to create workplace hazard maps
- Have the opportunity to ask a Cal/OSHA representative questions regarding the IIPP requirement
