Every day 12 workers die on the job, and more than 10,000 workers suffer serious job-related injuries. But the real tragedy is that most of these incidents could be prevented. Employers and employees can work together to find and fix the hazards in their workplace, before people get sick, injured or even killed.

The process begins when a company decides to strengthen its safety culture by adopting an Injury and Illness Prevention Program, known within OSHA as I2P2.

Atlantic Training's "I2P2: Injury and Illness Prevention" training program provides employees with important information on how this organized approach to workplace safety can significantly reduce accidents and injuries, and how the workers themselves can play a major role in making the program work.

Topics covered include:

  • Different Hazard Prevention and Control Strategies
  • What is I2P2?
  • Management responsibilities and employees' participation.
  • Hazard identification and assessment.
  • Hazard prevention and control.
  • Education and training.
