What’s a safety council?

 

The State of Ohio began safety councils in an effort to raise the safety awareness of Ohio employers. Councils offer valuable information, education and training on occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation and risk management issues.

When are the meetings?

What companies are eligible?


Only state-funded employers are eligible for the discount, but all companies – including self-insured firms – are welcome to participate.

Top


If I'm self-insured, can I still participate in the meetings?


Yes. Employees of a self-insured company are welcome to attend the monthly meetings to receive valuable safety training; however, self-insured companies will not be eligible for the 2% rebate on workers' compensation premiums.

Top


Can I join multiple safety councils?


No. Enrollment and the rebate for companies are limited to one safety council; however, your employees are encouraged to take advantage of the training opportunities offered by all of the safety councils.

Can I attend a meeting of another safety council to count for my 10 meetings a year?


No. Your meeting eligibility requirements must be met by attending one council. For example, you may send employees to councils in other counties, but you must attend at least eight meetings from the council in which you are enrolled to receive your discount.

How will the Bureau know that I am participating?


The Safety Council of Greater Columbus will handle all of the paperwork with the Bureau of Workers' Compensation - from enrollment to semi-annual reporting. As long as you turn in your reports to the Safety Council, your company will not be responsible for reporting directly to the BWC.

Top


What if a meeting doesn't apply to my work?


A company joins the council, so if a certain meeting topic is best served by the attendance of another individual in your company, they may attend in addition, or to replace you. Your credit is based on attendance by someone from your firm, not a single individual.

 

The meetings are also an invaluable resource for networking. Before each meeting, registration, networking and breakfast will take place, allowing time for you to talk to others who do business in your industry.
