USPS: Federal Injury Compensation Training

A new online tutorial available through HERO aims to educate USPS employees about the federal injury compensation process.

Basic training on federal injury compensation rules and procedures is now available through the HERO platform.

The self-paced tutorial was developed by the Labor Department’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs.

The training is part of FECA Overview, a curriculum of 26 courses on rights and responsibilities under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act.

Topics include:

• Requirements as an employer;

• Timelines regarding the filing of injury claims; and

• Specific text for claims management.

This online tutorial may be used in addition to the in-person training conducted by the Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation district offices, or as a refresher course.

Assessments are provided at the end of each module. Completion of this training is now tracked in HERO.
