The Orrville Area Safety Council kicked off the 2020 fiscal year July 10 with an overview of Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation Programs and Services.

“Ohio BWC has a lot of cost saving and grant funding programs available that are not well known.” stated Eric White from Ohio BWC, “any company who is not self-insured should be taking advantages of these opportunities to save and create a safer workplace.” 

The Orrville Area Safety Council is a partnership between Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce. Meetings take place on the second Wednesday of the month, attendance and submissions of two semi-annual reports may save your company a 2%-4% rebate on worker’s compensation premiums if enrolled by July 31st. 

Topics including Multigenerational Workforce Safety, Crisis Communications, and stretching to prevent injury are a few that will be presented throughout the year. The meetings are open to anyone interested in workplace safety. Visit to look at all the upcoming topics and register.
