Safety Grants:What's new and why you should apply

A dollar spent on improving workplace safety results in $3 savings in accident and injury costs. More importantly, investments in safety mean Ohio workers are less likely to be injured and more likely to return home safely each day to their family, their friends, and their community. That’s why BWC’s Billion Back plan includes a funding increase for the safety grant programs from $5 million to $15 million.      Read More...

Driving Awareness

Staying focused while driving can be difficult for any of us. It is easy to start thinking about other matters while driving. In fact, 25 to 30% of all truck drivers are daydreaming at any one time. The lights are on but nobody is home. If anything out of the ordinary happens, you will need to come back to reality before you can react. Often times it is too late. I have talked to a number of individuals that were in vehicle accidents, who couldn’t remember what they were thinking of right before the accident.

For decades, the agency has billed for employer premiums after-the-fact. It will begin billing in advance of coverage starting July 1, 2015 for private employers and Jan. 1, 2016 for public employers. This change will align BWC with standard industry billing practices.
