A certain amount of permanent damage (also called residual damage) may remain because of a work-related injury. The Permanent Partial (PP) – Scheduled Loss pays for loss-of-use injuries, such as the loss of the injured worker's vision, hearing or an amputation caused by a work injury. It is based on the loss suffered prior to treatment, not on the injured condition after treatment.
Example: An injured worker may get a Permanent Partial (PP) – Scheduled Loss award if their work-related injury causes them to have a finger amputated.

PP – scheduled loss award amount
Compensation for the PP – Scheduled Loss award is based on the nature of the injury, as well as the year that the injury occurred.
Under Ohio Revised Code (OCR) 4123.57(B), BWC or the self-insuring employer will pay all initial awards of the PP – Scheduled Loss benefit. These awards are commonly referred to as "Paragraph B" awards. They include payment for all scheduled losses (such as amputations), loss of use, loss of vision, total loss of hearing, or ankylosis (a stiffening of the joints).
