Every day, 12 workers die on the job and more than 10,000 workers suffer serious job-related injuries, but the real tragedy is that most of these incidents could be prevented. Employers and employees can work together to find and fix the hazards in their workplace, before people get sick, injured or killed. The process begins when a company decides to strengthen its safety culture by adopting an Injury and Illness Prevention Program, known within OSHA as "I2P2." The systematic approach that I2P2 uses to build a safety program can significantly reduce the number and severity of workplace accidents.
Since employees play a significant role in I2P2, it is critical that they understand how the program works and how they fit into the big picture. This program examines what in Injury and Illness Prevention Program is and shows employees how they play an important part in the I2P2 approach to building an effective safety program within their workplace.
