Workers’ comp in Ohio: Are your employees covered?
CompManagement, Inc. Group Rating Discount Program

BWC Group Rating Training Requirements
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) has undergone many changes affecting the group rating program you participate in through the Ohio Oil & Gas Association. Focusing on risk management through safety training, group rating participants with claims in the past two years must now complete two hours of safety training. If you have received a letter from either OOGA or CompManagement, Inc. stating that your company had a claim, you will find various classes available on this page to satisfy the training requirement.
If you have completed the training, you will need to report this to CompManagement, Inc. Please follow this link to complete a short questionnaire on the Risk Service website. You will also need to fax the required documentation to 1-866-567-9280.
If you have any additional BWC questions, please contact OOGA or CompManagement, Inc. for assistance:
