The state of Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation partners with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the University of South Florida’s Safety Florida Consultation Program to offer business owners and employers FREE seminars and webinars on the requirements of Florida’s workers’ compensation laws and workplace safety.
The topics covered include:
