The WCB announced today that its Construction Health and Safety Incentive Program is permanent after a three-year evaluation. The program now offers a 10% reduction in WCB assessment rates for construction firms that earn Certificate of Recognition certification and met other criteria. Since the pilot program was introduced in 2007, the time loss injury rate in the construction industry has dropped from 8.8 per 100 full time equivalent workers in 2007 to 6.9 per 100 full time equivalent workers in 2009.
