Policy Title
Reporting Workplace Injuries and Workers Compensation
Policy Description
All employees of the university are protected while on duty by a Workers’ Compensation Plan administered by State Accident Fund (SAF.) Medical case management is provided by Compendium Services, Inc., through a contractual agreement with SAF. Worker’s compensation claims are filed electronically by Compendium Services in response to the submission of a First Report of Injury. Questions regarding this plan or the reporting procedures should be directed to Winthrop University Environmental Health and Safety at 803-323-2392.

When an injury or illness is determined by SAF to be work-related, the employee’s medical expenses including prescription drugs and mileage for doctor’s visits in excess of ten miles per round-trip may be paid. An employee also may be eligible for temporary payroll benefits if they become disabled due to a work-related injury or illness and cannot work.
