Injury compensation

Worker grips shoulder in pain

Basic training on federal injury compensation rules and procedures is now available through the HERO platform.

The self-paced tutorial was developed by the Labor Department’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs.

The training is part of FECA Overview, a curriculum of 26 courses on rights and responsibilities under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act.

Topics include:

• Requirements as an employer;

• Timelines regarding the filing of injury claims; and

• Specific text for claims management.

This online tutorial may be used in addition to the in-person training conducted by the Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation district offices, or as a refresher course.

Assessments are provided at the end of each module. Completion of this training is now tracked in HERO.
