Guest Post: 10 things that make you a great workers’ compensation group rating program candidate

Columbus Chamber
The Columbus Chamber provides connections, resources and solutions that help small businesses and Fortune 500 enterprises grow Central Ohio's economy.

We asked our workers' compensation provider what characteristics make a company a good candidate for this savings program. Here's what they said:

  1. A start-up company with a new workers’ compensation policy can qualify year 1 for maximum discount allowed by BWC towards their premium.  A business does not have to wait 1-2 years to qualify for discounts as they may in other states.
  2. Current on all premiums, administrative costs, assessments, fines, etc. due to BWC (not more than 45 days past the due date by the group rating application deadline of February 28th)
  3. Have no cumulative lapses in workers’ compensation coverage of 40 days in the past 12 months preceding the application deadline
  4. Credit-rated or base-rated
  5. Utilization of a transitional work program
  6. Lower claims costs than expected for industry/manual classification
  7. Low turnover – stable workforce
  8. Safety minded organization – senior management that is active in developing and managing a safety plan to reduce and/or eliminate workforce injury claims
  9. Organization that utilizes hiring best practices to attract quality employees
  10.  Aggressive claims management philosophy and coordination with a third party administrator for representation to reduce claim costs
