Injury Illness Prevention Program

What is an Injury Illness Prevention Program (IIPP)?

The Snowline Joint Unified School District Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is a basic written workplace safety program. Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations (T8CCR) section 3203, requires every employer to develop and implement an effective IIPP. An effective IIPP improves the safety and health in our workplace and reduces costs by good management and employee involvement. To be effective our Injury and Illness Prevention Program must:
  • Maintained at each work site
  • Fully involve all employees, supervisors, and management
  • Identify the specific workplace hazards employees are exposed to
  • Correct identified hazards in an appropriate and timely manner
  • Provide effective training


The safety of students and staff is the highest priority for Snowline Joint Unified School District. Injuries and illnesses create personal loss and hardship to employees, students, and their families, and reduce the District’s ability to provide quality education. It is the District’s position that all accidents are preventable.

Site administrators have primary responsibility for providing a safe working and learning environment, and are accountable for compliance with applicable health and safety requirements. All supervisory employees, from senior managers to first line supervisors share responsibility for ensuring the safety of students and staff.

Every employee is expected to work safely, adhere to safety requirements, and immediately report accidents and potential workplace hazards to their supervisors.


All Snowline Joint Unified School District Employees, including managers and supervisors, are responsible for complying with safe and healthful work practices.

Record Keeping

All training and scheduled periodic safety inspections are maintained through a written/database documentation process.


All managers and supervisors are responsible for communicating occupational safety and health in a form which can be readily understood. Discussing safety concerns are part of an ongoing dialog between management and staff. Our communication system encourages all employees to inform their managers and supervisors about workplace hazards without fear of reprisals.

Incident/Exposure Investigation

Snowline JUSD investigates workplace accidents, and hazardous substance exposures to determine the cause of the incident or exposure to take corrective action for preventing the incident or exposure from reoccurring.

Training and Instruction

All employees, including managers and supervisors, are provided with training and instruction on general and job-specific safety and health practices.

Hazard Assessment

Periodic Inspections and evaluations to identify workplace hazards are performed in our workplace.

Hazard Correction

When observed or discovered, unsafe or unhealthy work conditions, practices or procedures are corrected in a timely manner based on the severity of the hazards.
