Policy Statement Revisions – PS 90 Workers’ Compensation and Other Insurance Coverage; PS 105 Return to Work Policy for Employees on Workers’ Compensation
In order to improve our effectiveness in accident prevention and to provide the best medical response for our injured employees, policies governing the procedures used in administering accidental injuries are revised periodically. The following process is a general outline of our policy development process:
Identification of policy needs
Research and drafting of initial policy language, including stakeholder input
Distribution to the University Safety Committee for input and review
Presentation to Executive Director, Administrative Services and Risk Management and other key affected administrators
Review by Legal Counsel and necessary governmental authorities
Opportunity for review and comment from campus community through publication in appropriate employee communications
Review, comment, and action by Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost
Review & approval by Chancellor
Distribution and posting
( Indicates completed steps )
PS 90 and PS 105 have been revised to reflect a more effective process of responding to accidental employee injuries. PS 90 provides employee, supervisor and departmental responsibilities and processes for workers’ compensation administration. Our aim is to improve the processes of reporting, investigation, medical response and return to work of injured employees. This revision incorporates the inclusion of PS 105 into the text of PS 90, since PS 105 only applies to employees on workers’ compensation.
