Illness and Injury Prevention Program (IIPP)

The Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is a Cal/OSHA required safety program. The IIPP provides a systematic and agency/department specific occupational safety framework for Alameda County agencies and departments. Every agency/department is required to have a current and customized IIPP. The IIPP is considered by many safety professionals as the backbone of your safety program. The provisions of the IIPP should be communicated regularly throughout the agency/department. Managers, supervisors, and employees are required to be familiar with their IIPP provisions.

An IIPP that is compliant will:

  • Identify the person or persons with authority and responsibility for implementing the program
  • Include a system for ensuring that employees comply with safe and healthy work practices
  • Include a system for communicating with employees in a form readily understandable
  • Include procedures for identifying and evaluating work place hazards including scheduled periodic inspections
  • Include a procedure to investigate occupational injuries
  • Include methods and/or procedures for correcting unsafe or unhealthy conditions in a timely manner
  • Provide training and instruction
