Need IIPP Training? 

Register for Classes

THROUGH RM&S WEB 

The Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) defines how our Occupational Safety program is implemented and identifies the supervisor and employee roles of responsibility for safety. Our policy and California regulations (California Code of Regulations, Title 8, section 3203) require that all employees receive IIPP training within 30 days of employment.  This requirement is usually obtained through New Employee Orientation.  However, employees who have not attended orientation, or who began employment prior to the implementation of New Employee Orientation, may still need to participate in this training. 

Our target goal is to ensure that all campus employees have been trained by December 2010.  RM&S will provide various training opportunities from September through December. Training dates are available on our web site http://www.csusm.edu/rms/training/index.html#Injury.  The instructions to register are below. RM&S can also provide department trainings upon request.  

Executive Council has been provided with a list of all employees who have not completed training as of September 2, 2010.  Per the IIPP Policy and Procedure, Executive Council will receive annual lists for Staff/MPPs and for Faculty. Executive Council will use these lists to assist the University with achieving compliance with this regulation, which will also provide awareness toward a generally safer work environment.

I have been here at CSUSM for over 10 years, and I have never heard of this training.  Why do I need it?

Our campus policy (approved in 11/09) and California regulations (California Code of Regulations, Title 8, section 3203) require that all employees receive IIPP training within 30 days of employment.  This requirement is usually obtained through New Employee Orientation.  However, employees who have not attended orientation, or who began employment prior to the implementation of New Employee Orientation, may still need to participate in this training.

What if I am retiring?

IIPP training is required for all employees receiving a paycheck from the University.  The next notice of Faculty members that are required to attend training will go out in October of 2011 to the Provost.  The next notice for Staff is in July of 2011 that will go to the VP's.  If by chance we are audited by the Board of Trustees or inspected by CAL OSHA, the campus would be found as incompliant and will be issued a citation. Your question is actually between you and your supervisor (MPP, Department Chair, Dean, etc.).  Your supervisor is responsible for this compliance, and we are doing our best to assist them with  achieving compliance by providing various venues for IIPP training.

I want more information on what IIPP is about.  Where can I find it?

The goal of the IIPP is to assist University employees, volunteers, and students in identifying hazards in the workplace, determining how to correct hazards that may occur, and taking steps to prevent them from recurring.  IIPP describes specific requirements for program responsibility, compliance, communication, hazard assessment, accident/exposure investigations, hazard correction, training, and recordkeeping. For more information please visit the RM&S IIPP page or call RM&S at x4502.

Do I really need to take this training?  I am a part time employee.

The next notice of Faculty/Staff members that are required to attend training will go out in October of 2011 to Executive Council.  If by chance we are audited by the Board of Trustees or inspected by CAL OSHA, the campus would be found as incompliant and/or will be issued a citation. Your question is actually between you and your supervisor (MPP, Dept. Chair, Dean, etc.).  Your supervisor is responsible for this compliance, and we are doing our best to assist them with  achieving compliance by providing various venues for IIPP training.  

I have already taken the this training 1 or 5 or 10 years ago.  Does it expire?

No, the training does not expire.  You only need it once in your employment.  We are only sending emails to faculty and staff that have not taken IIPP training per our training records.  Please feel free to contact RM&S if you need any additional information.

Is IIPP training offered online?

At this time, RM&S does not have an IIPP web-based training module available. The only available venues for completing this training are the scheduled courses located at http://www.csusm.edu/rms/training/index.html#Injury  and the courses offered through New Employee Orientation (NEO) when they are available.  NEO usually occurs on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and the IIPP session is at 10:30 AM.  Please let us know if you are interested in this venue so we can coordinate it with you.

RM&S is also offering departmental trainings for five (5) attendees or more. The special session would be outside our normal scheduled training and should be conducted at a time mutually acceptable to both organizations.
