Save Significantly on Your Workers’ Compensation Premium

Did you know that many alternative discounts are available to help reduce your annual Ohio workers’ compensation costs? Through the Carey Area Chamber of Commerce workers’ compensation program, your organization can significantly reduce your workers’ compensation costs through a variety of alternative rating programs. Our program, administered by Sedgwick, offers you quality service and stability through the complex workers’ compensation environment.

For over 50 years, Sedgwick has been helping employers navigate Ohio’s workers’ compensation system, providing services to help them control claim-related costs and reduce premiums. Our team includes the experienced colleagues from CompManagement and CareWorks Comp. The two companies merged and are now Sedgwick. Together, we serve nearly 65,000 Ohio employers including organizations of all sizes operating in various industries across the state. Group rating programs administered by Sedgwick have produced over $4 billion in savings since group rating was introduced in 1991, and their group retrospective programs have returned over $630 million in premium refunds since the program began in 2009.

RE: Group-Rating Safety Accountability

Dear Employer:

Each year Ohio employers have the opportunity to participate in BWC’s Group-Experience-Rating Program or Group-Retrospective-Rating Program. While these programs are not required, they do provide you with an opportunity to significantly reduce your workers’ compensation premiums, while increasing your awareness of safety and risk-management strategies.

Workplace safety is an important component of these programs. To succeed in accident prevention, we encourage you to use the many resources available to you. We believe a group-rating program is a partnership that includes you and your employees, your sponsoring organization or third-party administrator (TPA) and BWC. Each has specific roles and responsibilities, all designed to assist in preventing workplace accidents. This letter outlines the safety services expectations you should have as an employer enrolled in a group-rating program.

The employer will:
• Maintain a safe workplace.
• Attend safety training to enhance workplace safety.
• Use BWC’s safety services as needed.
• Fulfill the required two-hour training requirement and provide proof of attendance to sponsor for claim(s)
occurring within the last year.

The certified primary and affiliated sponsoring organizations will:
• Sponsor eight hours of safety training (this may be done at one time or may be provided incrementally as long as the total is at least eight hours).
• Provide information regarding safety resources to group members.
• Possibly assist an employer in achieving its safety needs.
• Manage employer fulfillment of the two-hour training requirement, where applicable.
• Publish this letter to group members.

The TPA may:
• Assist sponsoring organizations with fulfilling the group-rating safety requirements.
• Assist an employer with its safety needs.
• Work in conjunction with sponsors to develop safety training and deliver safety resources.
• Provide resources for claims handling.

BWC will:
• Monitor group-rating safety activities to confirm requirements are met.
• Remain in communication with sponsoring organizations to provide recommendations for fulfilling safety requirements.
• Provide safety training through Ohio’s Center for Occupational Safety & Health.
• Offer on-site safety consultation (hazard assessments, air and noise monitoring, ergonomics evaluation, training) by a BWC safety professional.
• Offer publications and videos for safety program support.
• Conduct employer visits to confirm the employer is meeting group-rating requirements, when appropriate.

The goal of this collaborative effort is to make sure all your safety needs are met. Using these resources will assist you in preventing accidents, reducing claims costs and achieving the highest discounts possible. Below you’ll find contact information for various resources.
