Every day, 12 workers are killed at work, while over 9,000 workers become seriously injured. Federal OSHA and the approved state programs must cover the safety and health of 130 million workers with a limited staff. Therefore, it's imperative for the employer to take responsibility of protecting their workers through comprehensive safety and health programs.
This presentation will give you an overview of the voluntary Safety and Health Management Guideline from OSHA. This guideline encourages employers to develop and maintain a comprehensive and effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (I2P2) to protect the employees. Cal OSHA and a few other states have made the I2P2 system mandatory, while others states are still voluntary. Having an active I2P2 system in place will save employers money through lower workers' compensation costs, increased productivity, and increased worker morale.
This session by expert speaker Sheldon Primus, MPA, COSS will give you the information and resource links necessary to assist you in creating an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program. In addition, you will be made aware of implementation steps for each major element of a safety and health management system, including management commitment and employee involvement; worksite analysis; hazard prevention and controls; and safety and health training.
