Semi-Annual Reports Due Soon

(BWC) fiscal year, FY10, is quickly coming to an end. All reporting members of the Lake County Safety Council (LCSC) are required to complete a semi-annual report. This report is used by the Ohio BWC for a variety of purposes and is a critical requirement for the success of the safety council.

Semi-annual reports will be sent to you shortly. Your assistance with entering your company’s data accurately and in a timely manner permits the LCSC to submit the data to the Ohio BWC by the deadline date. Please consider doing this as soon as you can.

The LCSC will be emailing and calling companies as the deadline nears. Help us limit unnecessary emails and phone calls to companies by completing your semi-annual report by July 23, 2010.

Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation and your continued support of the Lake County Safety Council.
