Is your Accident Prevention Program (APP) current?

Building a workplace safety culture requires collaboration among employers, management, and the whole work team.

An Accident Prevention Program (APP) is the cornerstone of every workplace safety program. One that is prepared thoroughly and updated frequently requires collaboration from management and employees.

Three key things to remember about your APP are:

  • Created and available at each work location
  • Inclusive of all hazards and current
  • Accessible and location is known to all employees

Our safety team can assist you in reviewing your current version or in creating an APP. You can use a new tool eAPP, to create one yourself.

Don’t forget about this: The Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) requires all businesses to have a safety plan (APP) in place specific to each of their locations. It is also one of the first items a L&I inspector will ask to see and is one of the most cited items during these inspections.
