WorkSafeBC announces 2019 rates
The average base rate for 2019 will remain at the same level as 2018, at 1.55% of employers' assessable payroll.
Lower claims costs and strong investment returns have enabled us to keep the average rate flat for 2019.
Together with worker and employer stakeholders, we're 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.
