Insurance and Risk Management

Our goal at the University of Florida (UF) is to not only provide a safe living, learning, and working environment for all the students, faculty, staff, and visitors, but to cultivate an enterprise risk management culture that enhances the effectiveness of the university’s mission.  Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) is charged with administering a variety of risk management activities intended to reduce or mitigate risk to the university community through hazard and risk identification, assessments, monitoring, communications, proper insurance coverages and providing proactive risk management awareness and training opportunities.

Our EH&S range of responsibilities address essential risk & insurance services which include coordination between the State of Florida and the university in risk reduction and loss prevention programs, working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on disaster recovery claims, managing an enterprise injury/incident reporting & investigation program, reviewing university events, occupational medicine program and the development of educational safety support training materials. Our program activities include insurance & policy management, overseeing property exposure in excess of $7 Billion, FEMA disaster recovery claims, fleet vehicle/boat/golfcart insurance claims, automatic external defibrillator (AED) program management, scientific dive safety, watercraft safety and operation, and 15-passenger van operator training.

As the safety and well-being of everyone throughout the UF System is our top priority, EH&S Risk Management welcomes anyone to our site and hopes that you have a safe and wonderful experience at all our UF campuses and sites.
