If you are a general contractor who subcontracts all work to independent firms or to labour contractors with their own coverage, registration may still be mandatory. Contact the Employer Service Centre.
If your subcontractor is registered but not making payments to WorkSafeBC as required, you could be liable for insurance premiums owing in connection with the work or service being performed on your behalf. If you're not registered, and your subcontractor's account isn't up to date, or if the subcontractor misrepresents its registration (i.e. if WorkSafeBC considers the subcontractor to be a worker), you could also be liable for retroactive premiums and the costs of a claim should someone be injured on the job.
For your own protection, it's good practice to request a clearance letter. This will tell you whether a business, contractor or subcontractor is registered with WorkSafeBC and paying regular premiums.
