The Risk Management program is responsible for administering the District's self-insured Workers' Compensation program.
The Workers' Compensation program ensures that claim forms are prepared within prescribed time frames; pertinent laws and regulations pertaining to workers' compensation are adhered to; coordinating and managing reported claims between the colleges, the District office, and contracted third-party administrators; ensuring that the program has sufficient funding to meet claims costs; and informing campuses of relevant policies and procedures.
LACCD's Workers' Compensation program also offers services to and on behalf of injured workers, such as ergonomic evaluations, ergonomic training to assist injured workers and to prevent further occupational injuries, job function analyses, a Return to Work (RTW) program, and injury prevention awareness.
Finally, the Workers' Compensation program arranges for and monitors various treatment facilities available to injured employees.
