Written on Feb 08, 2018


The backbone of a successful business is its workers, and the backbone of Ohio is its workforce. At the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, we take our mission to care for Ohio’s workforce seriously.

That’s why we’re offering Better You, Better Ohio! ™ - a program designed to provide health and wellness resources and services to workers of small employers (50 or fewer workers) in high-risk industries*. Better You, Better Ohio! helps workers and their employers at no cost through a simple, paperless process.

How it helps employers

Employers can reap great benefits from having a healthy workforce. Healthy employees are less prone to injury. And, when they are injured, their ability to recover is enhanced greatly. Overall, employers with a healthy workforce have lower workers’ compensation and health-care-costs. Better You, Better Ohio! can:

  • Help prevent injuries through improved workforce health and safety;
  • Reduce absenteeism;
  • Reduce the severity of an injury;
  • Reduce time away from work because of injury.
