What we do

The Saskatchewan WCB operates like an insurance company. We protect registered employers from lawsuits when a workplace injury happens and we provide guaranteed benefits and programs to injured workers in industries covered by The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013.

Our costs are funded entirely by premiums paid by employers in covered industries. The premiums are based on injury frequency and costs. Any injured worker in an industry covered by the Act can submit a claim for benefits and programs. Any employer in an industry covered by the Act must register with the WCB and pay invoiced premiums.

We see the effects of workplace injuries every day and believe that even one injury is too many. That’s why we are leaders in promoting workplace safety and injury prevention.

  • Mission: Zero is our call to action. Workplaces that take up the call join workers and employers across Saskatchewan who have targeted zero injuries, zero fatalities, and zero suffering.
  • WorkSafe Saskatchewan is our partnership with the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety. Working with the Ministry, we have developed a joint injury prevention strategy for our province. Learn more about WorkSafe Saskatchewan.
  • We are a founding partner in Safe Saskatchewan, a provincial coalition that intends to reduce the number and impact of unintentional injuries in our province. The Health and Safety Leadership Charter is a core strategy for Safe Saskatchewan. Through the Charter, businesses take up Mission: Zero’s call to action. Over 600 Saskatchewan businesses have signed the Charter since it was introduced in 2010.
