BREAKING NEWS for Dayton/Miami Valley Safety Council Members,
We are pleased to announce that the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) Administrator Steve Buehrer has announced the continuation of the 2+2% Safety Incentive Rebate Program for the 2012 Fiscal Year (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012). Administrator Buehrer made this announcement at the Ohio Safety Congress this morning in Columbus. Additionally, Administrator Buehrer stated that he will be presenting a proposal to the BWC Board for approval in April that will allow Ohio businesses to combine the Safety Incentive Rebate Program with their Ohio BWC Group Rating discounts.
These announcements are a great step forward in providing a greater return-on-investment for the Ohio business community and rewarding employers that have made workplace safety and accident claim reduction a top priority in their organizations. All of these efforts are a positive advancement in creating a more business friendly environment in the State of Ohio that will focus on job creation and maximizing safety in the workplace. Thank you to Administrator Buehrer and the Ohio BWC for making business development in Ohio a top priority.
As we learn more information about the impending proposal to the BWC Board, we will be in contact with you.
