Workers’ compensation insurance, also known as workers’ comp, provides benefits to employees who get injured or sick from a work-related cause.  It also includes disability benefits, missed wage replacement and death benefits.  Your Workers’ Compensation Representative can assist you if you believe you have a claim.  In addition, the Hanford Worker Engagement Center, has personnel who can assist in answering questions.  Workers’ Compensation at Hanford is administered by DOE contractor Penser.   The Washington Department of Labor and Industries determines whether a claim is allowed or denied.
