Safe Advantage is a mandatory annual program with specific criteria. Currently, it includes all employers with a three-year average assessment over $40,000. This small number of employers is responsible for 60% of all WSCC new claims costs.

Safe Advantage is an employer safety incentive program. Its basic principles promote workplace safety and Return to Work.

Safe Advantage is a sound business investment, with potentially high returns. This financial incentive program rewards Safe Advantage employers with proven health and safety, return to work/claims management practices, and low claims experience costs. Those employers who fall short of Safe Advantage standards pay penalties.

Employers with poor health and safety, return to work/claims management practices, and unreasonably high claims experience costs must be accountable for driving up assessment rates.

To ensure financial and administrative responsibility, Safe Advantage targets a relatively small number of employers. The WSCC developed a custom program that creates positive change, not a program where increased administrative costs leave us static.
