Workers' Compensation

Vermont State Government employees who are injured on the job are covered under the State’s workers’ compensation self-insurance program. Workers’ compensation claims are administered  by PMA Management Company of New England Inc. (PMA). The contract with PMA is managed by  the Agency of Administration's Office of Risk Management (ORM).

Workplace Safety

Workplace injuries and illnesses produce human suffering, economic and social losses and impair the operating efficiency of state government.  ORM has entered into an agreement with PMA to assist state agencies and departments in promoting safe work environments through training, program reviews and on-site consultations.  PMA works with ORM to improve safety in our workplace by conducting injury prevention analysis of reported incidents. The  goal is to examine the incident and conclude what can be done to prevent a similar incident from reoccurring in the future. PMA also monitors and evaluates statewide injury trends and exposures to determine if they are being properly addressed and makes recommendations to mitigate workplace injuries.

Safety Training

ORM, in partnership with the Department of Human Resources' Workforce Development Division, offers a suite of online, web–based health & safety trainings.  We encourage you to visit the State of Vermont Online University website and register as a new user today!
