Proposed policy amendments regarding industry group movement

WorkSafeBC adopted a new rate-setting model on January 1, 2019. Policy changes are needed to align policy with the current model and ensure WorkSafeBC’s timely ability to place and move industry groups into appropriate rate groups.

Our Policy, Regulation and Research Department is releasing a discussion paper, with options on proposed amendments to policy relating to industry group movement, for public consultation.

Proposed deletions of policy wording are identified with a strikethrough and additions are highlighted in bold.

The discussion paper, revised policy, and information on how to provide feedback can be accessed through the following link:
