Model COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP) This doc um ent c ontai ns i nf ormati on t hat requires font col or attri butes t o be tur ned on in scr een r eader settings . This is a fillable template that the employer may complete to ensure compliance with the COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard. Instructions in red font enclosed in brackets indicate where to enter worksite-specific information. Additional editing will be warranted, as needed, to ensure the written program is customized to actual workplace conditions and characteristics. There are four Additional Considerations at the end of the document that may need to be incorporated into the CPP, where applicable. With some exceptions, all employers and places of employment are required to establish and implement an effective written COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP) pursuant to an Emergency Temporary Standard in place for COVID-19 (California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 8, section 3205(c)). Cal/OSHA has developed this model program to assist employers with creating their own unique CPP tailored to their workplace. Employers are not required to use this program. Employers may create their own program or use another CCP template. Employers can also create a written CCP by incorporating elements of this program into their existing Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), if desired. Cal/OHA encourages employers to engage with employees in the design, implementation and evolution of their COVID-19 Prevention Program. Using this model alone does not ensure compliance with the emergency temporary standard. To use this model program effectively, the person(s) responsible for implementing the CPP should carefully review: • All of the elements that may be required in the following CCR, Title 8 sections: o 3205, COVID-19 Prevention o 3205.1, Multiple COVID-19 Infection and COVID-19 Outbreaks o 3205.2, Major COVID-19 Outbreaks o 3205.3, Prevention in Employer-Provided Housing o 3205.4, COVID-19 Prevention in Employer-Provided Transportation to and from Work o The four Additional Considerations provided at the end of this program to see if they are applicable to your workplace. • The additional guidance materials available at November 2020
