Safety Council Rebate Program Eligibility Requirements

Earn a premium rebate through safety education

Thousands of Ohio employers find value and workers’ compensation premium savings by actively participating in their local safety councils. And you can join them.*

To earn a safety council rebate, employers must meet rebate eligibility requirements in one of 83 BWC-sponsored safety councils.

Below is a breakdown of potential rebates when an employer is an active member of a safety council.

o Employers meeting all safety council rebate eligibility requirements that are not enrolled in a group-rating program will earn a 2-percent participation rebate on their premium and the potential of an additional 2-percent performance bonus.

o Employers meeting all safety council rebate eligibility requirements that are also enrolled in a group-experience-rating program have the potential to earn a 2-percent performance bonus.

o Employers meeting all safety council rebate eligibility requirements that are also enrolled in a group-retrospective-rating program will earn a 2-percent participation rebate.

To earn a performance bonus, employers must reduce either the severity or frequency of injuries in their workplace by 10 percent or remain at zero.
