Dear Safety Council Members,
Many of you qualified for the fiscal year 2020 (FY20) safety council rebate as a result of your active participation in the program from July 2019 through February 2020 before we announced the COVID-19 program waiver in April.
We have taken extra steps to provide financial relief to Ohio’s employer community during the ongoing pandemic, including a $1.54 billion dividend in April and a $1.34 billion dividend last month. The latest dividend represents 100% of billed premium for eligible employers for the time frame on which we would have calculated a FY20 safety council rebate. Because of this, there will be no FY20 safety council rebate.
As a reminder, many Ohio safety councils are providing ongoing safety education and networking through virtual monthly meetings. We hope you are taking advantage and benefiting from this resource. Also, we remain committed to assisting Ohio employers with their accident prevention needs during the pandemic. To learn more about our services, please visit www.bwc.ohio.gov.
For the latest information on COVID-19 in Ohio, visit www.coronavirus.ohio.gov. For questions about COVID-19 as it relates BWC, please email BWCCOVID19@bwc.state.oh.us.
Thank you for all you do to keep Ohio’s employers and workforce safe and healthy.
BWC Safety Council Program Manager
