Managing Director of Membership & Employer/Food Safety

The ORA has proudly served Ohio's foodservice industry since 1920, and offered assistance with navigating the Ohio Workers' Compensation system to its members for over 25 years.

Workers’ compensation in Ohio is challenging to navigate and can be extremely costly if companies fail to follow the rules established by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC).

That's why we've developed ORA Workers’ Compensation Group Rating Plans. There’s a plan that’s right for your company.

GROUP RATING

The ORA partners with Premier Vendor Sedgwick, formerly CareWorks Comp, to offer our members the only group rating plan specifically designed for Ohio's restaurant & foodservice industry. 

Our group plan helps employers of member companies achieve the highest group rating discount possible - projected to save $5.2 million, with an average ORA plan member saving up to $2,500 in workers' compensation premiums, or $19,200 in rebates.*
*Depending on which group plan chosen.

  • Employers continue to pay their individual premium; however, they have the opportunity to receive retrospective premium adjustments.

  • Employers committed to improving workplace safety and accident prevention in order to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents involving their employees should investigate this program further as an additional savings tool.

Each year Ohio employers have the opportunity to participate in BWC’s Group-Experience-Rating Program or Group-Retrospective-Rating Program. While these programs are not required, they do provide you with an opportunity to significantly reduce your workers’ compensation premiums, while increasing your awareness of safety and risk management strategies.
