Predominant activity and industry classification – your duty of disclosure

Explains why you need to tell WorkSafe about any potential change to your industry classifications and what happens if you don’t.


What it contains

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
