As one of Ohio's hard-working men and women, you are
a vital part of the growth and development of the Buckeye
State! What happens if you are injured on the job?
No matter how careful we are, industrial accidents can happen!
Dealing with such an accident is why BWC is here.
Since 1913, BWC has benefited employers and employees by providing medical
and compensation benefits for work-related injuries, diseases and deaths. Today,
BWC has a central office in Columbus and 21 customer service offices located
across the state.
BWC provides insurance to about two-thirds of Ohio's work force. The
remaining workers receive coverage directly through their employers. These
companies are part of a self-insurance program for large and financially stable
employers who meet strict qualifications set by BWC.
We have the largest exclusive state fund in the nation with a value of more
than $17.7 billion. And we are the second largest underwriters of workers'
compensation insurance in the country. We receive more than 300,000 claims a
year and pay more than $1.7 billion in benefits.
