Thousands of Ohio employers benefit from the education, resource sharing and premium savings which result from actively participating in their local safety council monthly meetings.
BWC Safety Councils can help you:
- Learn techniques for increasing safety, health, and wellness in your workplace.
- Network and share best practices with other employers in your community.
- Identify resources to assist you in your accident prevention efforts.
- Access risk management information and strategies to reduce your worker’s compensation costs
Safety Councils will be meeting in person again beginning in July 2022. Enrollment into a Safety Council program in your region can provide additional savings to your organization. It is designed to be an incentive program that enables employers to receive a rebate of 2% of their annual workers’ compensation premium through program participation.
For public employers, the rebate is on the 2021 rate year premium. For private employers, the rebate is on the 2022 rate year premium. The deadline to enroll in the Safety Council rebate is July 31, 2022.
For more information on the program including the participation requirements, go to SafetyCouncilMtgFactsheet.pdf (ohio.gov). To locate the nearest Safety Council to your organization, go to Safety council locations | Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (ohio.gov).
