The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission operate a no-fault, work-injury insurance program for workers and employers in Newfoundland and Labrador. Under Provincial Government legislation, employers cannot be sued by workers for injuries which occur at or during the course of their employment. The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Act (the Act) requires all employers performing work in Newfoundland and Labrador to register with the Commission and pay assessments based on their workers’ earnings (including directors) and report all contractors.

Employers can help control costs by providing safe and responsible work environments where accidents are prevented and workers safely return to work as soon as possible after an injury.
