If you are an employer looking for a way to save on your Workers’ Compensation costs, enrollment is under way for Destination: Excellence, a workers’ compensation discount plan that rewards Ohio employers for helping prevent workplace injuries and getting those employees who are injured back to work.


BWC Administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer says more than 100,000 employers have already chosen to participate in at least one of the seven programs that are part of the cafeteria-style plan, introduced by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) last year. He said those employers are expected to achieve an aggregate savings of $28-41 million.


“In addition to our focus on low and stable rates, we have emphasized prevention and care to highlight the importance of workplace safety, and achieving the best possible outcomes for Ohioans who are injured on the job,” Buehrer said. “Destination: Excellence recognizes the importance of both objectives by offering employers the opportunity to customize a risk management plan that helps them protect the health and well-being of their workers with safer workplaces and strong return-to-work programs.”


According to the BWC, Destination: Excellence is designed to help Ohio employers focus on safety, accident prevention and return-to-work opportunities to bring injured workers back to work sooner. The plan offers a package of BWC programs that allow employers to customize their own risk-management plan and rewards their investments in accident prevention, cost control, and policy management.


The deadline to apply for several components of the program is April 30 and the effective date is July 1.
