BWC-Sponsored Safety Councils Modified Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the pandemic, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation has made changes to how it will manage the safety council program.

Most of the more than 80 safety councils are now conducting virtual meetings.

The Safety Council Rebate Program is suspended for the July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 fiscal year. Safety councils are not collecting semi-annual accident reports. Subsequently, there will be no awards presented for the 2020 calendar year. 8/11/2020
