Job-Related Employee Injuries
The University of Florida provides medical attention for employees injured in the line of duty, and these job-related employee injuries are covered under the Occupational Medicine program. Primary cost recovery is obtained from the state Workers’ Compensation program. Visit “Reporting a Work-Related Injury” in the Workers’ Compensation section of UF’s Office of Human Resource Services website for more information.
The Needlestick hotline ensures that all UF employees encountering an exposure have immediate access to a medical provider in a timely manner.
Health Crisis Situations at UF
During health crisis situations at UF, the UF Occupational Medicine Clinic can address any unforeseen health condition which would be outside of the services addressed by regular health assessments or situations involving an isolated job-related employee injury.
