Safety council rebate eligibility requirements
Participation is simple.
- Join or confirm your existing, active membership in a local safety council by July 31, 2023.
- Attend 10 in-person safety council meetings between July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024.
- Attend at least eight local safety council sponsored monthly meetings, seminars, or special events. You can count all 10 for credit.
- You can earn external training credit for a maximum of two meetings through attendance at BWC-sponsored in-person or virtual training courses or in-person safety training from other external sources (e.g., industry associations, third party administrators, etc.). The employer must submit an official certificate of attendance to their safety council by June 30, 2024 for attendance at non-safety council safety training to qualify.
Additional safety council rebate eligibility guidelines:
- A person can represent only one policy number at a safety council meeting or external training event.
- Employers must be enrolled in a safety council for meeting attendance to qualify.
- Employers may earn one external training credit per event.
- Safety training conducted at an employer’s workplace does not qualify for safety council rebate program eligibility.
- Virtual/online training does not qualify for safety council rebate program eligibility except BWC virtual training classes.
* The rebate offer excludes self-insuring employers and state agencies. Limitations apply to professional/alternate employer organizations and their clients.
To receive the rebate, not to exceed $5,000 annually, employers’ policies must be current with respect to all payments due to BWC. Employers may not have cumulative lapses in workers’ compensation coverage in excess of 40 days within the prior 12 months. Additionally, employers must have timely reported actual payroll for the preceding policy year and pay any premium due upon reconciliation of estimated premium and actual premium.
