ABLE BC is pleased to share that the 2018 WorkSafeBC Base Rates will reduce for most tourism and hospitality sectors. The preliminary base rates were announced last week on the WorkSafeBC website. The average base rate for 2018 is projected to drop from 1.65% to 1.55% of employers’ assessable payroll. Lower claims costs and strong investment returns have enabled WorkSafeBC to lower the average rate for 2018.

Employers are encouraged to attend one of the upcoming WorkSafeBC Rate Consultation Sessions across BC in October to learn more about the preliminary base rates, injury trends and ways to reduce injuries, claim costs, and their insurance rate.

WorkSafeBC will share details of upcoming sessions on theirĀ website.
