It’s been brought to our attention that firms are contacting New Brunswick employers and suggesting they are non-compliant with provincial OHS laws. The representatives may claim to be WorkSafeNB or use aggressive sales tactics to push unneeded goods and services. These firms may use the WorkSafeNB or Government of New Brunswick logo without permission.
It’s time to report your annual payroll (Form 100). The filing deadline is Feb. 28, 2023. Please note we are not accepting payments or processing Form 100s at our office locations.
During the holiday season, we will process loss of earning payments in advance.
WorkSafeNB is pleased to announce it has reduced the average assessment rate for 2023 to $1.31, down 22% from the 2022 rate of $1.69. At the same time as assessment rates are decreasing, WorkSafeNB’s board of directors is pursuing legislative changes that would improve the benefits provided to injured workers and their families.
WorkSafeNB has a legal obligation to review the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act and its corresponding regulations every five years. This year marks the first review under this obligation.
