Workers’ Comp Meetings Scheduled in Van Wert, Hancock Counties

Ohio Farm Bureau is proud to announce its 90th year of involvement in the Workers’ Compensation Group Rating Program. This program is estimated to save members almost $6 million this year alone in Workers’ Compensation premiums.

One very important aspect of reducing Workers’ Compensation premiums is to reduce the number of claims/accidents within this group rating program. This can be accomplished by each group rating member doing his or her part to ensure a safe working environment for all employees.

Claims experience has improved over the last couple of years, which results in increased savings on Farm Bureau members’ Workers Compensation premiums.

Each year, for your benefit, Ohio Farm Bureau sponsors educational programs dealing with safety in the agriculture workplace. These programs are important for all employers in the program – large and small.

To help make these seminars more accessible to you, many county Farm Bureaus and Organization Director areas are sponsoring local meetings. The following meetings are scheduled in your area.
