June 16, 2017 - In This Issue:
We are pleased to welcome to the development community Brad Morton, the new Economic Development Director for Greater Chillicothe Ross County Development Partners.
Brad is not a stranger to Ross County. He's a Unioto graduate and Ross County resident. His previous work experience lends to his strength in the development department. Brad had previously worked in the office of Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, Rep. Gary Scherer and Rep. Tom Johnson.
He will fill the office left vacant following the retirement of Chris Manegold.
I look forward to working alongside Brad and wish him the very best. His office is in the Chamber's building at 45 E. Main St.

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 82 BWC-sponsored safety councils. 

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

  • 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. 
  • 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. 
  • 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. 

BWC Safety Councils can help you: 
  • Learn techniques for increasing safety in your workplace; 
  • Learn how to better manage your workers' compensation program; 
  • Network with other employers in your community; 
  • Access useful, money-saving workers' comp and risk management information. 
Rebate elibigility requirements: 
To quality for the BWC Safety Council rebate, you must meet the following eligibility requirements: 
  1. Join your local safety council by July 31, 2017; 
  2. Attend 10 safety council meetings**; 
  3. Send a qualified senior-level manager to a safety council sponsored meeting; 
  4. Submit semiannual workplace accident reports for the 2017 calendar year.

*The rebate offer excludes self-insuring employers and state agencies. Limitations apply to a professional employer organization and its clients. BWC encourages all employers to become active safety council members. 
**At least eight through the local safety council. You can get credit for up to two meetings through attendance at BWC's safety training courses or industry-specific training.
