The Safety Council of Greater Columbus (SCGC) is an expansion of the Builders Exchange of Central Ohio’s efforts to meet the safety training needs of all Ohio employers, regardless of their affiliation with the Exchange. With more than 250 members, the council serves Ohio employers interested in promoting and improving worker safety.
Together with the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC), the SCGC holds monthly meetings to provide information on new techniques, products and services to help employers improve and promote safe workplaces.
By participating in SCGC, for FY23 (July 2022 – June 2023) the BWC has reinstated the Rebate Program. Most employers who fulfill safety council rebate eligibility requirements can earn a 2% rebate on their workers’ compensation premium.
Up to two rebate credits can be earned through attendance at select BWC safety training courses or in-person safety training from other external sources.
