In addition to compliance with federal safety requirements, California employers must have an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) specifically designed for that employer. The purpose of this audit is to review all of the required elements of the employer’s IIPP; determine whether other company-specific safety programs are required (e.g., lockout-tagout); review recordkeeping for workplace illnesses or injuries (as required); assess the employer’s plans for potential workplace violence; and recommend implementation of measures to enhance workplace safety.
