DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC48 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Injury and Illness Prevention Program 

OSHA is developing a rule requiring employers to implement an Injury and Illness Prevention Program. It involves planning, implementing, evaluating, and improving processes and activities that protect employee safety and health. OSHA has substantial data on reductions in injuries and illnesses from employers who have implemented similar effective processes. The Agency recently issued Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs for both general industry and construction, which updates OSHA's 1989 Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.  An injury and illness prevention program rule would build on these guidelines as well as lessons learned from successful approaches and best practices under OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program, Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program, and similar industry and international initiatives such as American National Standards Institute/American Industrial Hygiene Association Z10, and Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series 18001.  OSHA is withdrawing this entry from the agenda at this time due to resource constraints and other priorities.
