2019 Premium Rates Announcement

WorkSafeBC announces that the average base rate for 2019 is maintained at the same level as 2018, at 1.55% of employers’ assessable payroll.

Lower claims costs and strong investment returns have enabled WorkSafeBC to keep the average rate flat for 2019.

Together with worker and employer stakeholders, WorkSafe BC is working to reduce serious injuries and enhance return-to-work opportunities. In doing this, we can collectively help to prevent injuries, improve return-to-work outcomes, and ultimately lower insurance rates.
