If your company is participating in a 2022 Group Rating or Group Retrospective Rating Program and had a claim filed with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) between July 1, 2019, and September 30, 2020, the BWC requires all Group and Group Retrospective Rating Program participants to complete two hours of safety training if they experienced a workers’ compensation claim during that period.
Safety training for the 2021 policy year must be completed by June 30, 2022. This training is still required even if you completed a safety seminar during the 2020 policy year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021) as that training would have applied to a claim made in the prior year.
Sedgwick, the third-party administrator for the group sponsored by NFIB in Ohio has previously contacted all companies who are required to take two hours of safety training. However, we encourage all members to attend if interested.
NFIB, in partnership with Sedgwick, invite you to attend safety training sessions on:
