Earn a BWC Premium Rebate through Safety Education
With all the changes being made in the worker's compensation system in Ohio right now, I'm sure you are looking at ways you can reduce your worker's compensation premium. Employers will once again be eligible for premium rebates for active participation in the Ohio Safety Council program according to the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC). Businesses can obtain up to a four percent rebate by meeting all eligibility requirements and certain performance benchmarks. Last year the Eastern Stark County Safety Council passed out over $93,000 in rebate checks to our members.
The Eastern Stark County Safety Council is sponsored by the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce and currently has over 60 members. The Council is open to all companies and individual employers interested in promoting and learning about workplace safety. There is no membership fee and membership in the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce is not required. The Safety Council meets on a monthly basis providing quality programs addressing occupational safety and health, worker's compensation and risk management education and information. You will be kept up to date on new techniques, products and services to help with your safety and health program.
