Injury and Illness Prevention Program

The San Francisco Community College District Injury and Illness Prevention Program for Workplace Security is available in PDF format.  The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act requires that employers provide employees with a safe and healthy workplace.  This requirement includes adoption of practices, means, methods, operations, and processes necessary to protect the life, safety and health of employees.  State Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) regulations require an employer who learns that a current or former employee has threatened violence against managers, supervisors or other employees may have to take certain preventive steps under the Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP).  This statute is cited in Title 8 of the California Code of Regulation General Industry Safety Orders § 3202.
