More than 185,000 public and private employers are expected to receive another round of rebates from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.

The BWC says the rebates totaling more than $1 billion follow another good year of investments. Bureau Administrator Steve Buehrer says last year, businesses were able to find various ways of putting their rebate money to good use.

“All kinds of stimulus and better safety programming came about as part of this and we would certainly encourage and expect the same sort of thing to happen once this program rolls forward,” Buehrer said.

The rebates amount to about 60-percent of the premium companies paid last year.
