The University of South Florida St. Petersburg provides a safe and healthy work environment. The USF System’s Workers’ Compensation program is intended to provide medical treatment, disability leave and supplemental wages, as necessary, to eligible employees in the event they experience a work-related injury or illness.
Eligible employees include Faculty, Administration, Staff, Federal Work Study student employees and Temporary (formerly OPS) employees, as well as Volunteers, who sustain a work-related injury or illness. USFSP is committed to returning employees to work, either on light or regular duty as appropriate, following a work-related injury or illness once a physician has released them to return to work.
The program is administered by the Florida Department of Financial Services with the Division of Risk Management acting as the carrier. At USF the program is overseen by the Division of Environmental Health and Safety Workers’ Compensation Administrator. Injury or illness reporting and medical case management services are provided to injured or ill employees and their supervisors by Amerisys in partnership with the Division of Risk Management.
