The UCLA Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is a guide to assist university administrators and supervisors to promote the health and safety of their employees. This IIPP complies with the Cal/OSHA requirement to provide a safe and healthful workplace for all employees (California Code of Regulations Title 8, Section 3203). It establishes methods for identifying and correcting workplace hazards, providing employee safety training, communicating safety information, and ensuring compliance with safety programs. It is reviewed and updated annually to reflect any changes in regulations, personnel or procedures.

The IIPP manual was last updated in September 2014 by the UCLA Department of Environment, Health & Safety.
