The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) has released an injury and illness prevention program (I2P2) white paper in response to OSHA's request for input related to the potential development of such a program.

According to a statement issued by AIHA, the association recognizes that under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible to “furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.” Aligning with this Act, AIHA members are dedicated to providing occupational health and safety expertise and management program support to ensure that worker health and safety risks and hazards are identified and properly mitigated, if not eliminated.
