Welcome to the FPM Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). In California, every organization with 10 or more employees is required to have a written Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) in place. Facilities Planning & Management (FPM) is committed to making this IIPP an effective tool for maintaining a safe and healthy work environment and ensuring full compliance with all applicable occupational safety and health regulations. It is important for all employees to understand and use safe work practices, follow applicable policies and procedures and take ownership of our roles listed in the FPM IIPP.

FPM personnel within the areas of custodial, trades, grounds, construction, and employees working in the field must wear proper footwear consistent with the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) regulatory requirements and approved by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

In partnership with the USC Roski Eye Institute, Facilities Planning & Management provides eligible employees reimbursement for prescription eye protection safety eyewear. Please reach out to your supervisor for more details.

The FPM Flex and Stretch program is recommended to benefit health and fitness in the workplace. The program is designed to aide you with preparing the body for physical work activities, increasing flexibility and relaxation as well as decreasing muscle tension.

The Healthy Workstation Guideline is our office workstation self-assessment and adjustment tool. It provides basic and helpful guidance to ensure all of your workstation components (e.g., monitor, mouse, etc.) are in the right place, you have proper posture, and most importantly, take periodic breaks. The links below will take you to the guideline.

The FPM Business Continuity Plan (BCP) supports and prepares Facilities Planning & Management following a major incident impacting the campus and provides the processes to resume critical campus business operations and building recovery.

The FPM Safety Committee is committed to supporting the FPM health and safety program for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. The Committee acts as the voice for the FPM organization and as a forum where health and safety issues can be submitted, evaluated, and mitigated.

Both the UPC and HSC campus perimeters were walked to evaluate and identify night safety hazards for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. FPM noted elements such as lighting conditions, walking surfaces for slip/trip fall hazards, emergency phone functions, and more. All corrective items are being processed through FPM and the City of Los Angeles as appropriate.
