The Ohio BWC Library provides free informational resources on occupational safety and health, workers' compensation, and rehabilitation. Our experienced librarians can locate hard-to-find information and provide timely and accurate answers to your questions. We provide the only such library in Ohio and one of the few in the nation. We can research and provide the following: safety codes, OSHA & ANSI standards, Ohio laws, Ohio administrative code, national fire codes (NFPA), national electrical codes (NEC), sample workplace policies and written safety plans, industrial hygiene (toxicology, thresholds, chemical info, etc.), statistics, articles and more. In addition to the library's research services, it has a video collection of more than 700 safety videos on a multitude of topics for employers to use for training employees.
The library is located on the third floor of the William Green Building in Downtown Columbus (30 W. Spring St., Columbus, OH 43215).
