Earlier this week, the California Commission for Health, Safety and Workers’ Compensation (CHSWC) published the findings of a study it had commissioned the RAND Corporation to conduct on the efficacy of California’s Injury and Illness Prevention Program.  That study failed to find any clear impact of the program on reducing fatality rates in the state. 

The news comes days after OSHA issued a white paper making the case to businesses that mandating I2P2 will reduce work-related injuries and fatalities and serve as a cost-saving measure in the long run. 

The full CHSWC report can be found on California’s Department of Industrial Relations web site at https://www.dir.ca.gov/chswc/Reports/2012/IIPPEvaluation.pdf.
