Since 1912, Ohio's worker's compensation system has helped employers and employees cope with workplace injuries by providing medical and compensation benefits for work-related injuries, diseases and deaths. The Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) has a central office in Columbus and 16 customer service offices located across the state. You may access the BWC web site at: www.ohiobwc.com
