Keona Fulcher, Human Resources General Manager at Cornerstone Delivery Service in Riverside, knows the importance of having an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) and the value of safety culture in her business. Parcel delivery services can be a dangerous business if employees don’t train their employees on slips, trips, and falls.
An opportunity to improve
When Keona joined Cornerstone, there were many open workers' compensation claims and no formal IIPP. An effective IIPP helps reduce work-related injuries and illnesses and the financial losses that can result from them. Keona took immediate action to establish a safety program and build a safety culture at the company. She knew this could avert injuries and help employees adopt a positive attitude about working safely.
Implementing an IIPP is essential
Keona’s first step was creating an IIPP using State Fund’s IIPP Builder℠.
