2021 injury trends – long term care

September 27, 2022 | News

The 2021 injury rate for SafeCare BC’s long-term care members decreased 16% from the previous year and outperformed the sector overall. This is good news. However, the cost of injury claims for the sector, which is a driver of WorkSafeBC premiums, increased 40% to $25.6 million, from 2020.

While the cost to treat claims is largely out of your control, you have a lot of control over workplace health and safety and preventing injuries from happening. What can you do?

Having an intentional focus on health and safety may seem daunting, but we are here to support you. We can walk you through WorkSafeBC’s Employer Health and Safety Planning Tool Kit so that you can understand your data. We can also provide one-on-one support.

When your injury claims are lower than the sector average, you’ll receive a discount on your WorkSafeBC premiums. Safe and healthy workplaces is something we should all strive for.
