June 30 is Enrollment Deadline for Several BWC Programs
Tuesday, June 30 is the deadline for new enrollments in Ohio BWC safety-related programs that can save employers money and increase safety.
Drug-Free Safety Program (DFSP): BWC’s voluntary program to address workplace use and misuse of alcohol and other drugs. Rebates of 4% or 7% are available for meeting program requirements.
Industry-Specific Safety Program (ISSP): BWC developed ISSP to encourage employers to use the many safety services and programs available through the Division of Safety & Hygiene. A rebate of 3% is awarded for program compliance.
Transitional work bonus program: Employers with a transitional work plan actively participate in the recovery and return to work of their employees. The cost benefits may include reducing compensation payments and lowering claims reserves. Eligible state-fund employers may receive a 10% bonus.
Keep in mind that Group Retrospective Rating participants cannot receive rebates for these programs — and employers already participating in these programs will be automatically reconsidered. Contact your OMA workers’ compensation account manager or Brian Jackson to learn more. 6/18/2020
