Knowledge Base

In the WorkSafeBC Health and Safety Planning Tool, under Financial Summary, what does the maximum potential savings specifically mean, and what can employers do to be proactive to achieve the savings?

The maximum potential savings section shows what could be saved with the 50 percent discount on the base rate. To drive down costs, you should prevent injuries and illness and improve loss-time results, which often drive claims costs. This is easier said then done, so you can use the EHSPTK to analyze where some of the greatest challenges are and then build a strategy to drive the costs down.
