Your industry classification is based on your 'predominant activity'. It is an important factor in the calculation of your premium. That means you have a duty to tell WorkSafe any information that could affect your industry classification. This document outlines:

  • what industry classifications are
  • how and when WorkSafe determines your industry classification
  • what information you need to tell WorkSafe (for example, if you change what activity your organisation predominantly does)
  • what happens if you've under or overpaid
  • what happens if you fail to disclose information you should have
