California's Injury & Illness Prevention Plan

In California every employer has a legal obligation to provide and maintain a safe and healthful workplace for employees, according to the California Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1973. As of 1991, a written, effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is required for every California employer.  

Effective January 1, 2004, California Labor code AB3037 requires every employer in California with experience modifications of 2.00 or above to establish, implement, and maintain an effective "Injury and Illness Prevention Plan" in accordance with established guidelines. In addition, every Workers' Compensation Insurer is now required to conduct a review, including a written report of the injury and illness prevention program (IIPP) on each of it's insured's with an experience modification of 2.00 or higher.  This report must be completed on all new business within the first 4 months of policy inception.

This manual describes the employers’ responsibilities in establishing, implementing, and maintaining an IIP Program. It also outlines steps that can be taken to develop an effective program that helps assure the safety and health of employees while on the job. You will find details on the various levels of compliance, from high hazard to low hazard that fit your business needs
