Injury and Illness Prevention

To assist districts in providing a safe and healthful workplace, the SIA model Injury and Illness Prevention Program provides an outline of the essential elements of the plan. All California employers, including school districts, are required to have an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) in place and it is often requested when Cal/OSHA visits. An IIPP must:

  • Be in writing
  • Identify the person with authority and responsibility for implementing the program
  • Provide a means for identifying job safety and health hazards
  • Establish routine documented inspections and describe corrective steps taken to eliminate any hazards discovered
  • Document training of new and current employees in general safe work practices and specific hazards related to their job assignment
  • Provide a method for assuring compliance with safety requirements
  • Describe a system for communicating with employees on safety and health matters
