Worker's Compensation

All injuries to UA employees are required to be reported to Risk Management Services How to report injury online.

The reasons why injury reporting is important include:

  • Injuries to UA employees are recorded by RMS in the OSHA 300 Log. RMS maintains this log and submits periodic summary reports on behalf of all UA departments.
  • When injuries occur, reporting gives RMS an opportunity to work with the injured employee's department to identify and correct unsafe practices and hazardous conditions.
  • An initial report of injury also serves the purpose of initiating a claim for workers' compensation benefits on the employee's behalf, if applicable.

Workers' Compensation Insurance

Workers' Compensation is a special form of insurance provided to all university employees who are injured while in the course and scope of employment. When an employee is injured on the job, workers' compensation benefits are intended to cover the cost of all necessary medical treatment associated with the injury, and to pay the employee for lost work time. These benefits are regulated by state law and administered by the Arizona Department of Administration, Risk Management Division.

Supervisors will use UAccess to report workplace injuries involving their employees and to start the workers' compensation claims process. Detailed instructions for making an online report and additional information are provided within this link.

The information on this website is designed to provide only basic guidance about the claims process. For detailed questions, contact Belen Aranda, Workers' Compensation Program Coordinator in RMS at (520) 621-3626 or email: baa@email.arizona.edu.
