Injury and Illness Prevention Training

Learn how to access Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) safety training.


UC San Diego developed the Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) in response to a California state law that requires safety training for all employees. The program's purpose is to help employees understand and avoid on-the-job risks.


All employees must receive IIPP training once during their career at UC San Diego. This includes student employees, graduate students, and visiting scholars who receive compensation from UC San Diego. New employees should complete the requirement within 30 days of hire. Laboratory employees should satisfy this requirement by completing the required initial Safety Training for Researchers.

Group training

IIPP training can be customized for your workgroup and presented upon request. Group sessions are often the best use of everyone's training time, and often a successful way for supervisors and safety coordinators to ensure employees meet the program requirement.
