Workers' Compensation

Ohio workers' compensation system helps injured workers and employers cope with workplace injuries. BWC pays medical benefits and lost wages to employees who are injured or contract an occupational disease on the job.

The Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) underwrites insurance coverage for work-related injuries and illnesses for public and private sector employers conducting business in Ohio and oversees the workers' compensation programs for self-insured employers (primarily Ohio's largest companies). BWC also assists employers and employees in creating and maintaining a safe work environment.

The bureau manages all medical and lost-time claims, initiates coverage and determines premium rates and manual classifications.
