The Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Division of Safety & Hygiene co-sponsors 82 safety councils across Ohio. They provide a forum for occupational safety and health in local communities. The Belmont County Safety Council is co-sponsored by the St. Clairsville Area Chamber of Commerce.

Safety Council is a monthly meeting on topics related to occupational safety and health, accident prevention, risk management, health & wellness, and workers’ comp issues. The program allows for business and industry to network and share ideas beneficial to workplace safety. Safety councils also collect semiannual accident statistics to determine recipients of annual recognition awards.

Thousands of Ohio employers save on their workers’ compensation premium by actively participating in their local safety council. Visit www.bwc.ohio.gov for the most up-to-date information on the potential premium savings associated with this program.
