Ohio BWC Rebate Program

A partnership between the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and the Dayton/Miami Valley Safety Council allows the chamber to offer its participating members a chance to save up to 4% on their annual BWC premiums. Attending monthly workplace safety education and training meetings and an annual safety conference as a member of the Dayton/Miami Valley Safety Council, as well as maintaining a flat or decreasing claim record with the BWC makes your business eligible for the rebate.

Note: The Ohio BWC has temporarily suspended the rebate program due to COVID and we are not currently tracking safety attendance. We expect the program to resume in July 2022.
