I2P2 Update: Key Developments to Track & How to Improve Your Existing Safety Program Using Anticipated I2P2 Process Standards
|Date / Time:
One of the items on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) regulatory agenda for 2013 and beyond is the development of a federal Injury and Illness Prevention Program (I2P2) standard.
In recent comments on I2P2, OSHA Chief Dr. David Michaels said that given the fact that the agency doesn't have enough inspectors to visit every workplace to ensure that health and safety rules and best practices are being followed all the time, a better plan to compliment inspections is to require employers to create and implement a plan for identifying and remediating hazards.
Most safety professionals believe that it is just a matter of time before OSHA rolls out I2P2 requirements, similar to those that are in place in other states such as California. Although it may take some time for OSHA to finalize its vision, due to its slow and cautious approach, understanding the I2P2 process and using the elements to improve your existing safety program is something that you can do now.
Don't wait for an OSHA inspection or a workplace tragedy to address workplace hazards. Prepare now, and in doing so, get a leg up on complying with the likely I2Ps framework.
Join us for an in-depth webinar, where we will help participants understand the I2P2 process and use it to improve their existing safety program.

- Possible approaches where you can use certain principals initially and thus make the I2P2 process more manageable
