All employers in Ohio are encouraged to annually review their workers’ compensation program to ensure that they are garnering the most premium savings while keeping in mind their risk tolerance. A few tips that will help control your costs include:

  1. Review Your Options
    There are several alternative rating programs in Ohio for an employer to consider that offer savings on their annual premium either up-front or retrospectively. Some programs are also compatible with each other to allow an employer to “stack” the discounts together up to the maximum discount allowed. There are different eligibility requirements for each program but each has the goal to reward an employer for their focus on safety in the workplace and controlling claim frequency and severity.
  2. Utilize Cost Containment Strategies
    To mitigate claim costs, many employers opt to implement strategies such as a transitional duty program, salary continuation, handicap reimbursement and possibly settlement. By removing costs from your experience, you may be able to lower your annual premium rate that is calculated by the BWC thus reducing your annual spend.
  3. Look at Your Risks
    If your business is prone to common types of injuries such as slips and falls, repetitive motion or soft tissue injuries, several different safety programs can be implemented to reduce the frequency of occurrence. It is also important to review job duties that may lead to common injuries that can be avoided and/or prevented.
