You have the responsibility to provide a safe and healthy workplace.
For workers employed by private companies or state and local government agencies, workers’ compensation—meaning compensation for workers who experience work-related injury or occupational disease—is overseen at the state level, by individual state workers' compensation boards.
For four certain specific groups of workers, however, the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers workers’ compensation programs. These programs, which provide wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and other benefits, are the:
- Federal Employees' Compensation Program
- Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program
- Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Program
- Black Lung Benefits Program
