It is essential to provide training for employees concerning general safe work practices as well as specific instruction with respect to hazards unique to each employee's job assignment.The University Injury Illness Prevention Program is designed to identify the different hazards to which an employee may be exposed during the course of conducting their regular job duties and outlining different measures that can be implemented to either correct hazards or mitigate the risk of resulting in an accident or injury but also prevent reoccurrence.


The Department of Safety and Risk Management (SRM) offers Injury Illness Prevention Program training in the form if Initial/Reassignment Training to all employees. This training can be done in one of two different ways.

  • Take the interactive Injury Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) Web Based Training and print the certificate of completion.
