WorkSafeBC insurance provides protection for employers and benefits for workers who suffer a work-related injury or illness.
Upon registration, you pay premiums, and in return you're protected from potential lawsuits from workers who are injured or contract an occupational disease at work. By law, most businesses need coverage and if the business fails to register with WorkSafeBC when required, you could put yourself at considerable financial risk. Workers who get injured on the job are entitled to file a claim even if their employer is not registered as required.
