Employee Injury/Illness Management provides guidance and assistance with:
Workers’ Compensation Insurance (WCI)
- Workers’ compensation injuries
- Ergonomic worksite evaluations
- Temporary job modifications
- Permanent job accommodations
WCI is a form of insurance specifically designed to provide medical benefits and, in some cases, financial payments to employees on the payroll of UTMB who suffer
compensable injuries or occupational diseases in the course and scope of employment. Workers’ compensation is not health insurance, and it does not provide compensation
for damage to or loss of personal property.
Please note: Reporting an injury does not make it compensable, and not all injuries
Report an On-the-Job Injury
Ergonomic Worksite Evaluation
Request an Ergonomic Worksite Evaluation
The goal of an ergonomic worksite evaluation is to allow for a more adjustable,
and comfortable work area that results in a neutral, low-stress posture for the employee.
Temporary Job Modification
Request a Temporary Job Modification
A temporary job modification allows employees with temporary disabling medical conditions
to perform their job through a modification of job tasks and/or job schedule.
Permanent Job Accommodation
Request a Permanent Job Accommodation
The purpose of the permanent job accommodation process is to make it easier for people with disabilities to obtain protection under the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act (ADA).
Employee Injury/Illness Management actively engages in the interactive process to determine
if there is a need for a reasonable accommodation.
