Group Rating Safety Accountability Letter

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.

OGA Testimonial


“One of the reasons we joined OGA was because of the workers’ comp program.  We started on the traditional plan and later moved to group retro.  The premium savings are great and the service has been exceptional.

The staff at CareWorks Comp has always been there to answer anything I’ve ever asked.  All in all, it’s been a really good program for us.”

Wally Wagner, Wagner’s IGA, Minster, OH
