DEI for EHS Professionals Webinar | How can safety be more inclusive?
November 4, 2021 | 9 AM PST, 11 AM CT, 12 PM ET
What can we as safety professionals do to provide equal access to training and other resources for people who might be or feel excluded or marginalized in the academic safety culture? How can we harness our limited resources to increase participation and foster ownership of a shared responsibility for safety? Join this panel discussion to hear these and other questions addressed.

An Introduction to the Cal/OSHA Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP)

Presented by: Scott Bourdon, CIH, ARM, CSP, REHS
Sr. Mgr., Risk & Environmental Health & Safety
This course will review the Cal/OSHA Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) requirement. OSHA considered adopting a similar requirement a few years ago, and many other states require one for certain industries. Whether or not your State requires an IIPP, it acts as a simple safety management system anyone can understand and use. Simple metrics can be adopted for it. And an IIPP will help your team and co-workers understand their safety roles and responsibilities.
