July 31 is The FY13 enrollment period for new and Safety Council members who are interested in qualifying for a rebate of 2 percent or more on their Workers’ Compensation premiums. It is also time for dues renewal and submission of 1st Half 2012 Semi-annual Reports for present members.
In a special incentive program, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation is offering Ottawa County area employers a one-time rebate of 2 percent on their Workers’ Compensation premiums for active participation in Safety Council during the next 12 months. The rebate offer excludes self-insuring employers or state agencies. New for FY13 is that employers participating in BWC group-retrospective programs are eligible for a 2 percent participation rebate. As in FY12 group-experience-rating members are eligible for a 2 percent performance rebate. For many companies, the 2 percent or 4 percent savings will actually outweigh the cost of membership in Safety Council.
