WorkSafeBC collects fees from employers, in the form of insurance premiums, to protect workers, employers, and their dependants from financial hardship in the event of a workplace injury or disease. Employers are protected from lengthy and costly lawsuits, and their workers are eligible for compensation benefits if they suffer a work-related injury or disease.
As an employer, your roles and responsibilities include registering with WorkSafeBC, paying premiums, and maintaining a safe workplace. You also need to understand the claims process and what you can do to assist an injured worker return to work safely. Compliance with the Workers Compensation Act, Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, and First Aid Regulation is also part of your responsibility as an employer.
