The Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) describes specific requirements for program accountability, conformity, communications, hazard evaluation, accident inquiries, hazard correction, training, and documentation.
Ever since the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act was signed, workplace deaths and reported occupational damages have dropped by over 60 %. This program’s purpose is to help employees understand the core principles of HSE and avoid on-the-job risks.
How does this “Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) Training Course” guide organisations to prevent injuries? Every organisation is different, so when it comes to injury prevention programs, one size may not necessarily fit all.
In terms of HSE, there are some core elements in the organisational plan that are important to ensure the success of the program, and these elements are interconnected. These elements consist of worker participation, management leadership, hazard identification and assessment, hazard prevention and control, education and training, program evaluation, and continuous improvement.
Companies who implement the IIPP mould these elements to meet the needs of their organisations, depending on size, industry, and operational complexity.
