Group Rating Safety Accountability

While these programs are not required, they do provide an opportunity to significantly reduce workers’ compensation premiums, while increasing awareness of safety and risk-management strategies.

- This program provides a discount, shown on your premium statements, up to the maximum of 53%. That’s immediate savings on each payment to the BWC! The better your claims history, the more you can save.
- More than 3,400 Cincinnati Chamber participants save over $14.7 million in this program — that’s an average of just over $4,300 per participant.
- Commonly referred to as “group retro,” this program provides a refund to qualified participants and has proven to be a valuable option for companies who may not qualify for the highest group rating discounts due to one or more claims. Although participants need to wait for their refund to be paid by the BWC, current participants are expecting a 56-62% refund.
- More than 560 Cincinnati Chamber participants are projected to receive refunds of over $14.4 million – that’s an average of more than $24,400 per participant.
