#61 IIPP Program

The Company has the responsibility, expertise and authority to manage the safety of its employees at all jobsites. The IIPP program should comply with the provisions of California State Occupational Safety & Health Administration (“Cal/OSHA”) laws, relevant ANSI Standards, Labor Code 6401.7, California Code of Regulations Title 8, which includes the General Industry Safety Orders and Construction Safety Orders, Senate Bill SB 198, Assembly Bills, AB 1930, AB 2380, AB1127 and other applicable laws. A copy should be onsite.

 

Every California employer must establish, implement and maintain a written Injury and Illness Prevention Program and a copy must be maintained at each place of employment. The requirements for establishing, implementing and maintaining an effective written Injury and Illness Prevention Program are contained in Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations, Section 3203 (T8 CCR 3203).

 

The IIPP program should contain all of the 8 core elements of the essential framework required by Cal/OSHA for an injury and illness prevention program in a high hazard industry. Although all injuries cannot be foreseen or prevented, to achieve maximum effectiveness the program must be maintained by each employer. Due to unique differences at each job-site, a site-specific injury and illness prevention program should be adopted. This “site-specific” maintenance of the safety programs should be kept current in the IIPP manual.

 

The format of our Company Injury & Illness Prevention Program is designed to closely parallel the Cal/OSHA requirements of a high hazard industry, utilizing wherever possible the actual content of recommended text and layout provided by Cal/OSHA, supplemented by an extensive list of Appendices that hopefully enable the user to effectively comply with all of the most important requirements of the law. A copy of General Industry Safety Orders, Construction Safety Orders and Electrical Safety Orders are available at our corporate office.

 

Our company IIPP manual is only intended for use by the company’s own employees. Each on-site subcontractor has the responsibility to manage the safety of its own employees. This includes correcting or removing hazards and, in all cases, promptly notifying the site superintendent of any hazards that exist, or may be created. Visitors must report to site-superintendents and obey all safety rules while onsite.
