OMA Safety & Workers’ Comp Committee Hears From OSHA, Ohio BWC

On June 11, the OMA Safety and Workers’ Compensation Committee met virtually for its second meeting of 2020. Members were briefed on recent legislative activity and actions by the DeWine administration that could impact Ohio’s workers’ compensation system. In addition, members received updates from experts from Ohio BWC and OMA Connections Partner Safex. The keynote speaker was Howie Eberts, area director for OSHA, who provided Ohio-specific updates from the agency.

This week’s meeting marked the last for longtime committee Chairman Larry Holmes, vice-president of finance and treasurer for Fort Recovery Industries, Inc. Holmes is currently a candidate for the Darke County Board of Commissioners. We thank Larry for his many years of committed leadership and service to the OMA. Matt Shurte, general counsel and secretary at Lancaster Colony Corporation, will follow Holmes as committee chair.

The committee — which is open to all OMA members — is scheduled to meet again Nov. 4. 6/11/2020
