SB 198 Injury and Illness Prevention Programs

State law requires that every employer shall establish, implement and maintain an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program.

Cal/OSHA’s SB 198 Injury and Illness Prevention Programs require: 

  • Procedures for Periodic Inspections to Identify Hazards.
  • Procedures for Correcting Hazards in a timely manner.
  • Provisions for Employee Training and Instruction.
  • A system for Communicating, Understandably with employees.
  • Procedures to Investigate Injury & Occupational Illness.
  • A system for Ensuring that Employees Comply.
  • Identified Person with Authority and Responsibility for Implementing. 
  • A system for Maintaining Records to Prove Implementation. 
  • Optional Safety Committees.

Pacific Employers has prepared over 2000 of these programs to help employers comply with Cal/OSHA’s SB 198 Injury and Illness Prevention Program.

Emergency Response & Fire Prevent Plans

We develop these plans inasmuch as they are required of every employer in California. Those employers of 10 or more employees must have their plan in writing, and the plan must including a map.

Hazard Communications Plans

We develop Haz-Com plans because every firm that handles hazardous materials must have a plan that defines who will obtain Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), how hazardous materials will be handled, labeling and small container rules, and how employees will be trained in the handling of hazardous material.

Lock Out/Tag Out Plans

We develop plans and provide equipment for protecting employees that could be injured adjusting, maintaining, repairing or servicing machinery.

Proposition 65 Compliance

We obtain, create and provide signs, posters and guidelines on how to comply with state laws regarding hazardous materials.

Respiratory Plans

From nuisance dust to cancer causing vapors, employees subjected to these hazards must be protected through a program that determines what protection to use, teaches the employee how to wear the device and how to clean it. Pacific Employers fashions these plans.
