About Our Agency

At BWC, our job is Prevention & Care. It's good for workers, employers and Ohio's economy. Everything we do each day ties back to these two simple purposes:

  • Preventing injuries and occupational illnesses on the job - The best claim is one that never happens. That's why it's critical for us to focus on prevention through safety education, training and consultation;
  • Caring for injured workers so they can return to work and life as quickly as possible - In spite of everyone's best efforts, injuries and illnesses can happen in any workplace at any time. That's why we must also focus on injured worker care to ensure the best outcomes and return-to-work success.

When Prevention & Care come together, we seal the deal for our customers - Ohio's employers and injured workers. That same partnership that brings together Prevention & Care is what we're all about. It reduces costs and lowers premiums for employers, allows businesses to succeed throughout the state and, most importantly, keeps Ohio's workers healthy and safe on the job. 

We also fulfill a promise made in Ohio more than 100 years ago when workers' comp began. The partnership between business and labor created a system that provides a financial safety net for employers and workers - as well as peace of mind.
