Workers Compensation

Dixie State University provides workers compensation insurance through Workers Compensation Fund of Utah.

Every employee is eligible to receive workmen’s compensation for an injury sustained while on the job (DSU Policy 345).

All employees are covered by State Industrial Insurance. This provides for hospital costs, physician’s fees and weekly benefit payments while absent from work due to injury incurred while at work. The entire cost is borne by Dixie State University.

Accidents resulting in personal injury are to be reported immediately to the employee’s supervisor, and within twenty-four hours to the Human Resources Office. To submit a Workers Compensation Claim CLICK HERE.

Call 911 immediately if the injuries are life threatening. If only routine medical treatment is needed, the employee must go to IHC WorkMed located at 385 North 3050 East in St. George (just past Costco) if the injury occurred during work normal hours Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If routine treatment is needed either before or after these hours, the employee must go to River Road InstaCare at 577 S River Road (Near Dixie Regional Medical Center-office hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.. Sunday thru Saturday). No paperwork is needed. All the employee needs to do is inform the medical office staff that he/she is an employee at Dixie State University and was injured while at work.

The Emergency Room should only be used if the injury is life threatening or the injury occurred after WorkMed or the InstaCare have closed.
