Calculate your ROI

Keeping employees safe is always a priority for an organization however financial incentives are also beneficial in helping to improve a safety program. It's necessary for organizations to understand how much they could be entitled to if successful in achieving COR Certification.


Employers who achieve and maintain COR may be eligible to receive:

WorkSafeBC uses the following calculation to determine the incentive amount for Large Employers:
Employer's reported assessable payroll x (CU base rate / 100) x 10%

WorkSafeBC uses the following Guideline to determine the incentive amount for Small Employers:

75% of their premium up to a $1000 as an annual incentive payment from WorkSafeBC.


UPDATE: Incentive Payments

As of May/June 2021, WorkSafeBC will no longer provide physical cheques for COR financial incentives. Instead, if an employer meets the program’s incentive eligibility criteria, incentive payment will be credited directly to the employer’s WorkSafeBC account.

This change will:

  • Eliminate delays in reimbursement created by mail delivery disruptions or outdated contact information.
  • Eliminate the step requiring the cheque to be deposited.
  • Reduce the environmental footprint.
  • If you have any questions about this new credit incentive, email


Here you can calculate your organization’s potential incentive.

(If your "Potential WorkSafeBC Incentive Payment" is calculated as less than $1000, please refer to the small employer incentive guidelines above.)

*Please note potential incentives calculated on this page are not a guarantee of actual WorkSafeBC incentive payment amounts.
