Assessment rates

Each year’s assessment rates must generate enough revenue to cover all current and future costs associated with that year’s workplace injuries, including health care, rehabilitation and wage replacement benefits.

In addition to accident-related expenses, the assessment rates must also cover all expenditures for safety and prevention programs and all administrative expenses, and may include a funding adjustment to account for prior year deviations.
