Like all branches of the German Social Accident Insurance System, the UKH is also compulsory. The insurants are insured by law against the consequences of work-related risks (work and school accidents, occupational diseases, commuting accidents, occupational health hazards). The German Social Accident Insurance Institution for the public sector in Hesse has a social self-government, consisting of representatives of employers and insured member companies. The supervisory authority is the Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs. The insurance coverage is non-contributory. The contributions will be paid solely from the cities, municipalities and the State of Hesse.

Main tasks and achievements of the UKH are:
- prevention (prevention of work-related and school accidents and occupational diseases by consultation, training, monitoring and evaluation;
- rehabilitation and compensation by all appropriate means: medical, occupational, in school and in everyday life;
- cash benefits: injury benefit during incapacity, attendance allowance, pensions;
