“BWC is pleased to present the region’s employers with $62 million they can use to strengthen and grow their businesses,” stated Bob Braun, BWC Regional Business Development Manager. “While the money is theirs to spend as they see fit, we encourage employers to invest in workplace safety measures that prevent injuries and reduce their workers’ comp costs.”

The checks are part of a $1.5 billion rebate to Ohio employers this summer, the agency’s largest in 20 years.

The rebates are possible because of “healthy investment income, falling claims and prudent fiscal management,” according to the bureau.

The bureau is mailing the checks through the end of July.
