Safety and Workers' Compensation Services


Exclusively for Ohio Manufacturers

The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association is a workers’ compensation third-party administrator, certified by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. OMA Workers’ Compensation Services are delivered by the only Ohio TPA that exclusively serves manufacturers, with more than 600 manufacturers across Ohio using our system.

How Our Workers' Compensation System Works

We’ve created a comprehensive system for managing claims, thereby reducing the burden on your staff. We only focus on manufacturers, so we know how to manage the types of injuries and illnesses that occur in manufacturing, and we represent both self-insured and state-funded manufacturers of all sizes. In addition to offering a number of premium discount programs, including Group Experience and Group Retrospective, we also provide safety training and guidance, as well as claim, policy, and hearing representation.
