2020 policy year safety training requirement
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) requires Group and Group Retrospective Rating Program employers to complete two hours of safety training if they experienced a workers’ compensation claim between July 1, 2018, to September 30, 2019 (also known as “green period”). You are receiving this notice because our records indicate that this requirement applies to your policy. Safety training for the 2020 BWC policy year must be completed between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021. NFIB and CareWorks Comp are currently offering the following webinars listed below to help you satisfy this BWC safety training requirement.

Finally, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to connect to the webinar on that day. A $25 fee will be invoiced to the registered email following the completion of the webinar.

To fulfill the training requirement through BWC, you may also complete a BWC safety course. For more information, contact the BWC Division of Safety & Hygiene at www.bwc.ohio.gov.
