McCon will discuss why OSHA believes Injury and Illness Prevention Programs are proactive processes that can substantially reduce the number and severity of workplace injuries and illnesses and can alleviate the associated financial burdens on the workplace.
The OSHA I2P2 Initiative shows how these systematic programs allow workers and employers to collaborate on an ongoing basis to find and fix workplace hazards before workers are hurt or become ll.
McCon will discuss why OSHA is promoting Injury and Illness Prevention Programs as an effective took for reducing occupational injuries, illnesses and fatalities. Many workplaces already have adopted such approaches, for example, with part of OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) and Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

---Hazard Identification & Assessment
