Description

California employers are subject to two safety laws that will dramatically affect their practices and policies. SB 198 requires every California employer to adopt, implement, and maintain a written injury and illness prevention program. In addition, the California Corporate Criminal Liability Act also requires managers, high-ranking individuals, and corporations to report certain safety hazards to employees and appropriate government agencies and to correct such hazards in a timely manner. The Employer’s Guide To SB 198 Injury And Illness Prevention Programs discusses the laws from an employer’s perspective. It examines the statutes and regulations and describes the obligations created by both laws. It also provides a sample personnel policy and contains sample illness and injury prevention programs.

Among the numerous topics addressed are the following:

  • Sample Injury And Illness Prevention Programs
  • Review Of Statutory Rules
  • Impact On OSHA
  • Training Requirements
  • Manager’s Reporting Duties
  • Key Requirements Of IIPP
  • New Record-Keeping Rules
  • Sample Personnel Policies
  • Inspector Requirements
  • “Be A Manager, Go To Jail” Law
  • Safety Committees
