ClickSafety Introduces Injury and Illness Prevention Programs

ClickSafety.com, the leader in online safety training, today announced the nationwide availability of its customized Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) service offering.

Injury and Illness Prevention Programs have been recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as effective for both workers and companies, and are widely considered the foundation of creating an effective culture of workplace safety.

ClickSafety's IIPPs are company-specific programs that allow employers and workers to take a proactive approach to workplace safety and health hazards. Through ongoing collaboration and proven industry processes, IIPPs establish industry standards to identify and mitigate workplace hazards before workers are exposed to them.

ClickSafety's custom IIPPs include the discovery, development, documentation and implementation of required safety and health program topics relevant to a specific company. IIPPs also include optional on-site auditing to identify potential hazards, customized training curriculums for workers, and ongoing IIPP updates so the program and documents evolve with the growth of a company.

"At ClickSafety, we are committed to providing the highest quality safety and compliance online training programs in the industry. IIPP assistance now means guiding our clients beyond training and providing critical solutions in support of their safety initiatives, goals and objectives. Injury and Illness Prevention Programs are a crucial element," says Brian Tonry, ClickSafety General Manager and Executive Vice President. "By putting in place a comprehensive and dynamic IIPP, companies may reduce the number of workplace injuries and illnesses as well as the potential financial burdens that come from unsafe conditions, behaviors and work practices. We're very pleased to offer this invaluable service to our clients."
