CANTON, OH (November 3, 2012) – At the Stark County Safety Council luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 8, attendees will get all of their questions answered about the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Transitional Work program. During the luncheon, Anthony Serluco, disability management coordinator for the Ohio BWC will introduce the transitional work program, help guests determine if a TW Program is right for their business and how to get started. The BWC’s transitional work program offers meaningful, productive work to workers with restrictions in helping them remain or return to work sooner. It’s a program the employer sets up so injured employees can return to work more quickly and safely—either in their original job or a temporary work assignment until they’re ready to resume their original job. The program increases the odds the worker will stay connected to the job and recover more quickly. Tickets to the Nov. 8 luncheon are $16 and are available online at, or by calling (330) 458-2070. The luncheon is open to the public, but guests are encouraged to join the Stark County Safety Council. Each monthly luncheon of the Stark County Safety Council is held at Meyer's Lake Ballroom (3218 Parkway St. NW in Canton). This month's spotlight company is Superior Glove Works, Ltd.
