BWC Waives Two-Hour Safety Training Requirement for 2019 Program Year

Normally, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) requires Group-Experience and Group-Retrospective rating participants that had a claim occurring in the “green period” to complete a two-hour training class by June 30, 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the BWC is waiving this safety requirement for the 2019 program year.

The BWC encourages employers to take advantage of its online training opportunities. And, as a reminder, the OMA will continue to offer its monthly schedule of safety webinars. 4/30/2020
