BWC has the authority to self-insure a construction entity for specific projects. The guidelines for Self-Insured Construction Projects are outlined in Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 4123.35.
For the purpose of the approved project, only those employees and subcontractors will be under the employer’s self-insured policy. Employees not working on the approved project will continue to be under the employer’s state-fund policy. Upon completion of the construction project, the employer will go back to becoming a solely state-fund employer. Both public and private construction projects may be eligible.
To self-insure a construction wrap-up project submit the Self-Insured Construction Wrap-Up Application (SI-50).
