Seminars and Workshops

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) requires that employers who are participating in a Group Rating Program or Group Retrospective Rating Program, and had one or more workers’ compensation claims in the preceding two years, must attend two hours of safety training.

Any employee of the company is permitted to attend and fulfill the safety training requirement. BWC procedures only permit individuals to obtain 2 hour credit once per session. If you represent more than one company or policy number, you must attend a separate session per policy.

All meetings held at 7:00 AM at the Courtyard by Marriott.
