Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP)


The DOE 10 CFR Part 851, Worker Safety and Health Program, establishes a framework for a worker protection program that will reduce or prevent occupational injuries and illnesses, and accidental losses by requiring DOE contractors to provide their employees with safe and healthful workplaces. SLAC has been granted a variance by creating an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) that complies with applicable California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) regulations in lieu of the requirements in 10 CFR 851 subpart C and appendix A.

Cal/OSHA regulations and the IIPP are at least as effective and have the same intentions as 10 CFR 851 and the Workers Safety and Health Program (WSHP) – namely, providing an environment that is safe for workers to work. Because of this shared goal, there is substantial overlap between the two sets of regulations. SLAC acknowledges that there are portions of Subparts B and C and Appendix A that are not entirely covered by Cal/OSHA regulations. To address those areas, SLAC has developed an IIPP per 8 CCR § 3203 and incorporated those sections or an as-protective equivalent of 10 CFR 851 into the IIPP, as needed, to provide a substantially equivalent level of protection. As such, SLAC uses the combination of Cal/OSHA regulations and requirements within the IIPP as alternative means to comply with Subparts B, C and appendix A. Oversight and enforcement of the IIPP remains with DOE.
