Rate Framework (Archived): Proposed Preliminary Rate Framework

Three Gears intermeshing 1st Gear:Step 1: Employer Classification, 2nd Gear:Step 2: Class Level Premium Rate Setting, 3rd Gear:Step 3: Employer Level Premium Rate Adjustments

Objective 1: Transparent, consistent, adaptable and responsive classification structure with fewer and larger groups for premium rate setting purposes, based on predominant business activity.

Objective 2: A Class Target Premium Rate that reflects the collective experience of all employers within each class, setting the stage for a significant range of potential premium rates.

Objective 3: One prospective rate setting approach for all employers, acting as an early warning for employers with premium rate implications, supporting their efforts aimed at improving health and safety outcomes.
