WorkplaceNL seeks feedback on PRIME Program
Thursday, May 31, 2018


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 31, 2018

St. John’s, NL – WorkplaceNL is seeking comment from interested stakeholders on the operation and effectiveness of the Prevention and Return-to-Work Insurance Management for Employers/Employees (PRIME) program.

Started in 2005, PRIME gives refunds to employers that meet certain criteria on their documented occupational health and safety programs and return-to-work programs. It also gives additional refunds or levies costs, depending on the employers’ workplace-injury claims experience.

Feedback from stakeholders will help WorkplaceNL to improve the program. A consultation document, now available on www.workplacenl.ca, asks how the program can help promote safe workplaces, create effective return-to-work programs and respond to different types of employers and workers in the province.

Written submissions will be accepted up to July 13, 2018 via email to: PRIMEreview2018@workplacenl.ca.
