Report an occupational death or hospitalization
Public employers must report workplace fatalities and hospitalizations either by phone or email.

Public employers must report workplace fatalities within eight hours to the Public Employment Risk Reduction Program (PERRP). That includes heart attacks and motor vehicle accidents. All incidents resulting in a hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye must be reported within 24 hours to PERRP.

To report a fatality

  • Call PERRP at 1-800-671-6858, and press option 1.
  • If you receive a voicemail, provide a contact name, phone number and the employer's name. 
  • Complete the fatality notification form and email it to PERRPFatality@bwc.state.oh.us
