Injury Illness Prevention Program

The University Injury Illness Prevention Program is designed to identify the different hazards to which an employee may be exposed during the course of conducting their regular job duties and outlining different measures that can be implemented to either correct hazards or mitigate the risk of resulting in an accident or injury but also prevent recurrence.

Who Must be Trained?

All employees must be trained on the University Injury Illness Prevention Program. This training is generally done at the point of hiring during an employee's New Hire Orientation or shortly after beginning a new role within the institution.

When is Training Required?

Injury Illness Prevention Program Training is often referred to as Initial/ Reassignment Training and is required in the following circumstances whenever they occur:

  1. Initial: Taken initially when an employee begins work,
  2. Reassignment: Taken when an employee is reassigned, changes jobs or the hazards to which they are exposed during their job changes (i.e. equipment changes, material changes etc.)
  3. Updates: When Environmental Health and Safety makes changes to the University Injury Illness Prevention Program, employees must be trained on the changes and will be notified when that occurs.

Risk Assessments

EH&S has developed the Universal Safe Work Practices guide to advise employees of what hazards they may be exposed to during their normal duties. Employees should review the guide and browse for the group that best fits their role within the institution. Each role outlines a list of common hazards as well as safe work practices to mitigate those hazards.

Some roles may require personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect them against work-related hazards. As applicable, employees should review our PPE Guide to identify what PPE is recommended for their specific role.

OSHA Injury and Illness Record-keeping and Reporting Requirements

Record-keeping Requirements

Employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. Minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded. 

This information helps employers, workers and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards and implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate hazards - preventing future workplace injuries and illnesses. 

Maintaining and Posting Records

The records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years. Each February through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.
