Learn more about workers’ compensation and safety – for free

The Florida Department of Financial Services and Division of Workers’ Compensation are offering free seminars and webinars in 2015. In addition, the Division of Workers’ Compensation, OSHA and USF’s Safety Florida Consultation Program are teaming up to address ways to improve workplace safety.

The seminars will be held across the state from January through June. All business owners, licensed contractors and employers are invited to register for the sessions. If you can’t make the seminars in person, free webinars will cover the same material, and you can watch from your computer or smart phone. The topics include:

  • Key Statutory Definitions
  • Insurance Coverage Requirements – Exemptions
  • Contractor Responsibilities
  • Enforcement Provisions
  • Direct and Indirect Costs
  • Inspections
  • Florida Fatalities

The Division of Workers’ Compensation is authorizing continuing education units for the seminars to contractors licensed by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Construction Industry Licensing Board, Electrical Contractors Licensing Board and the Board of Accountancy.

All of the seminars and webinars are free, but you must register to attend any of the sessions.
