ILLNESS & INJURY PREVENTION PROGRAMS (IIPP)
An Injury and Illness Prevention Program, (IIPP) is a basic written workplace safety program. Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations (T8CCR) section 3203-requires every to develop and implement an effective IIPP.
An effective IIPP improves the safety and health in your workplace and reduces costs by good management and employee involvement.
You must inform your employees of their right to receive a copy of your written IIPP. You must also have a written COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP). Download CPP Template and attach to your company’s IIPP.
More important than needing an IIPP, you want one.
There’s no question that injuries can have a big impact on your business. The Ergo Firm offers guided program development that keeps your entire staff on the job while increasing productivity. The biggest catalyst in having an effective IIPP is avoiding expensive citations that come from not having one.
Each year, CAL/OSHA issues more fines to businesses in violation of not having a IIPP than it does for any other standard.

IIPP HEALTH & SAFETY PLATFORM
Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is a safety tool that can be used to define and control hazards associated with a certain process, job, or procedure. It is a systematic examination and documentation of every task within each job to identify health and safety hazards, and the steps to control each
A Physical Demands Analysis (PDA) is a systematic procedure to quantify, and evaluate all of the physical and environmental demand components of all essential and non- essential tasks of a job. A PDA is the “cornerstone” of the analytical process used to determine compatibility between a worker and a specific job.
A job hazard analysis (JHA), also called a job safety analysis (JSA), is a technique to identify the dangers of specific tasks in order to reduce the risk of injury to workers. Why is a JHA important? Once you know what the hazards are, you can reduce or eliminate them before anyone gets hurt.
Many OSHA standards explicitly require the employer to train employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. Our workplace safety training is a process that aims to provide your workforce with knowledge and skills to perform their work in a way that is safe for them and their co-workers. In addition, an effective workplace safety plan includes instructions and guidelines to identify hazards, report them, and deal with incidents.
Work Site Ergonomic Evaluations (WSEE) identifies the fit between the person and the job through optimizing job design or the work system overall. Our goals include reduced risk of injury, better employee health, improved job satisfaction and higher productivity/work capacity. Our Workplace ergonomist addresses physical issues like optimizing workstation layout, lifting tasks, static loads and prolonged standing or sitting, with the goal of reducing and avoiding injury and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
