Through the Division of Safety & Hygiene within the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC), a Workplace Wellness Grant Program is available to employers that will allow for 50 employee participants with an allocation of $300 per participating employee over four years.
The amount per employee is graduated each year, taking into consideration employee participation when awarding and renewing the grant. Grants are made available to all eligible state-funded employers in Ohio, with applications being reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Employers will be required to share data pertaining to health care risk factors and costs with the BWC to guarantee proper use of grant awards and effective implementation of the wellness programs in their workplace.
If your organization has an interest in the grant program as highlighted above or you have any questions regarding Workplace Wellness initiatives, please contact CompManagement’s Risk Services team toll-free at (888) 264-2635, extension 65495.
