This Month's Tip

Do you have a Safety Plan (IIPP)?

An Employer is required to have a written safety plan an IIPP- Injury & Illness Prevention Plan (Cal. Code of Regulations Section 3203). During every inspection conducted by Cal/OSHA the inspector will ask to review a copy of the employer's IIPP. Failing to have an IIPP is the most common citation issued by Cal/OSHA. The citation for this violation is generally $500. An employer need not provide a written copy to all its employees, but it should be a written document that is available to all employees to review and the contents of it should be communicated to the employees, either in writing or orally, during safety meetings. Safety meetings with your employees should be conducted regularly, but the frequency will depend on your industry. While an attorney can prepare an IIPP for you, most likely you can obtain a generic copy from you workers? compensation Insurance Company at no cost. Then, you can customize it to your Company and if you need assistance, you can ask an employment attorney to review it and/or give advise on the best way to implement the policy.
