California employers are required to have a written and effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). Violations of IIPPs account for the highest portion of all California workplace health and safety citations every year, costing employers time and hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties. In particular, section 3203(a) violations – the section of California law requiring employers to implement an effective IIPP and to document hazard training given to employees – is an area of liability that many employers can proactively avoid. This session is aimed at educating employers on:
- The background of California’s IIPP regulations and Cal/OSHA’s enforcement initiatives;
- Joint safety and health committees and whether your committee is effective pursuant to Section 3203 (c) requirements;
- How to perform a self-audit and evaluation of your IIPP; and
- How to proactively create your IIPP in the event Cal/OSHA conducts an inspection.
This webinar will also provide recommendations and guidelines that will empower employers to make changes to their IIPP, ensuring that it is effective and minimizes the risk of violations and penalties.
