Understanding workers' compensation

Ohio workers' compensation helps injured workers and employers cope with workplace injuries. The Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) pays medical benefits and lost wages to employees who are injured or contract an occupational disease on the job. BWC also pays death benefits to survivors when a death results from a work-related injury or disease.

From our leadership to our frontline employees, BWC is committed to working alongside Ohio's employers to help prevent workplace accidents. From industry-specific safety training to on-site consulting services, BWC offers numerous programs and initiatives specifically designed to protect your company's most valuable resource – its employees.
