I commend them for their dedication to what is truly important; the safety of Ohio’s workers.”

A local business organization, such as a chamber of commerce, another state agency or a BWC employee can nominate a business for a Governor’s Excellence in Workers’ Compensation Award. A business may also nominate itself.

Three private state-fund employers are selected; two winners must have fewer than 100 employees, while the other company must employ 100 or more workers. In addition, two awards are given to a public employer and the sixth winner is a self-insuring company.
