Cal/OSHA Guide to Developing Your Workplace Injury and Illness Prevention Program
In California every employer has a legal obligation to provide and maintain a safe and healthful workplace for employees, according to the California Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1973. As of 1991, a written, effective Injury and Illness Prevention (IIP), Program is required for every California employer.
Cal/OSHA provides an online manual with checklists for self-inspection: Guide to Developing Your Workplace Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIP). The online Guide describes the employer’s responsibilities in establishing, implementing and maintaining an IIP Program. It also outlines steps that can be taken to develop an effective Program that helps assure the safety and health of employees while on the job.
