Accident Prevention Program

According to the Department of Labor & Industries, all employers in Washington State are required to create a written Accident Prevention Program (APP). As a valued BNCW member company, we want to make certain that your company is in compliance. Here are helpful links to tools to help ensure that you are in compliance. 

Please select the link that is appropriate to your industry. The document you select will open in a Microsoft Word format, allowing you to edit and save the document so that it is specific to your company's information and needs. If we can be of assistance to you in this process, please do not hesitate to contact the BNCW staff.

The following two tables list the most common safety and health rules cited during L& I inspections. The first table is relative to all industries, whereas the second table is strictly related to the construction industry. The related links provide information that can help strengthen your workplace safety program.
