Maximum Group Discount Set

The BWC will maintain the maximum group discount for the next two program years, according to the BWC e-newsletter.

Effective July 1, 2010 the maximum discount for group-rated employers will be 51 percent. This, according to the newsletter, is the result of the 65-percent credibility table and the break-even factors.

This rate was approved by the BWC Board of Directors and announced last fall. The BWC will keep the same 51-percent maximum discount for group employers for the policy year starting July 1, 2011.

Lake County Safety Council Membership

We hope your organization will renew its membership with the Lake County Safety Council for Fiscal Year 2011 (FY11) when you receive your membership renewal invoice. The deadline date for renewing is August 30. Your membership helps the LCSC improve the health, safety and environmental awareness of our community and its partnering organizations within Lake County and surrounding areas. The LCSC will continue to strive to meet your needs that were identified in our most recent programming survey.

Over the past year, we have significantly improved the LCSC website and purchased a new tabletop display to promote our organization. We were able to accomplish this with your support of technical meetings, monthly luncheon meetings and sponsorship opportunities.

We hope you use monthly meetings to network with peers and to talk to steering committee members about safety, health and the environment. The committee members have broad ranges of backgrounds and experiences and welcome questions at any time. Committee member biographies and contact information is available on the website, www.councilnews.org. Maximize your membership today by connecting with peers and tapping steering committee member expertise.

Semi-Annual Reports Due Soon

The BWC fiscal year, FY10, concluded July 31, 2010. 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 were sent to you via e-mail.

If you did not receive this report, contact Mark Wainwright as the safety council directly at 440-255-1616.

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.
