Injury and Illness Prevention Program

The California state regulations require every employer to establish, implement and maintain an effective injury prevention program. We have developed a campus-wide Illness and Injury Prevention Program that outlines the overall plan for University compliance.

Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management is responsible for overseeing the University IIPP. Tasks include:

  • Periodic work area inspections
  • Identifying and correcting unsafe acts and conditions
  • Informing employees of unsafe conditions that cannot be immediately corrected
  • Accident review/investigation
