USF St. Petersburg strives to provide a safe and healthy work environment. The 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. USF St. Petersburg (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 Workers’ Compensation program is administered by the Florida Department of Financial Services with the Division of Risk Management acting as the carrier. Medical case management services are provided to injured or ill employees and their supervisors by AmeriSys in partnership with the Division of Risk Management.
