I would like to congratulate all the companies who received checks yesterday at our monthly Safety Council meeting. In all, $ 217,718.99 was given back to companies who successfully participated in the BWC's Discount Program. This distribution represents a two-percent discount from paid premiums. An additional two-percent bonus is available for employers that reduce either their frequency or severity of claims by 10-percent or more below the previous year, or that maintain both frequency and severity at the previous year's level.
Also I want to recognize Vicky Crist for her hard work and dedication to the Licking County Safety Council. She truly has a concern for the safety of our Licking County companies and employees. Nice job Vicky!
