Pay your assessment premium

WorkSafeNB determines employers’ assessment rates annually. Several factors influence rates, such as WorkSafeNB’s current financial obligations, the prevailing economic environment, the cost of health care services, claims adjudication and benefit policies and practices, legislation, injury frequency and severity, workplace prevention and return to work initiatives, as well as the changes in the nature of workplace activity in the province.
