Workplace Safety

If you have a safety concern, please fill out the Safety Concern Form. The report is submitted online and is reviewed by the Department of Environmental Health and Safety. Once received, the situation is either investigated or referred to another department for investigation. After the investigation, corrective actions will be planned and executed if needed.

Visit our training section for a list of courses available for classroom training.


EHS receives notification of claims to determine whether safety issues caused or contributed to the incident and to identify and recommend appropriate measures to prevent a recurrence.

Employees should report incidents to their supervisor and both should complete the 1st Report of Injury Form. Human Resources should be notified and the claim reported to AmeriSys.  AmeriSys will assign a claim representative to confirm eligibility and assist the employee in securing appropriate treatment and benefits.

Any sickness or injury that occurs while in the course of employment, or which is believed to have been caused by a condition of employment, should be reported as soon as possible to supervision, UCF Human Resources, and AmeriSys at 1 (800) 455-2079.

Questions regarding Workers’ Compensation can be directed via email to UCF Human Resources at Additional information, forms, and contacts can be found on the UCF HR website.

Additional information can also be found at the State of Florida Division of Risk Management website.
