Grow Ohio: If your company is a startup that initiated its workers’ comp coverage on or after 7/1/11, you should get an automatic 25% discount unless you chose to get into group rating for a discount of up to 53%. You will lose the discount if you don’t complete the safety survey plus 2 hours of safety training by June 30.
Go here to read the requirements and click on the links to complete the survey & training: http://www.ohiobwc.com/employer/services/GrowOhioInc/GrowOhioIncInfo.aspx
Group rating: If your company is in group rating and had one injury in 2009 or 2010, someone from your company has to complete 2 hours of safety training by June 30 or your company will not get its group rating discount.
To take the training, go to www.bwclearningcenter.com. Read my previous blog post to quickly sign up for & take the online training. Then take the test, take the survey, save or print your certificate, and notify your group rating TPA.
After you take the training, send me a comment and I’ll publish the results:
- What class did you take?
- How many credit hours, 1 or 2?
- How long did you spend taking the course?
- What did you learn: a lot, a little, nothing new, total waste of time?
