What We Do

WCB claim cost recovery for the construction industry.

Premier Research & Consulting provides assistance to Alberta employers with:

  • evaluating accounts and auditing claims with Workers’ Compensation Boards in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan to lower premiums and generate refunds of past overpayments.
  • representing company interests in interactions with the WCB or Appeals Commission. (More information here).
  • successfully managing challenging claims to ensure Experience Rating costs are minimized and reasonable.
  • ensuring the best possible positioning with contractor-management services such as ComplyWorks and ISNetworld as it pertains to your claims history.
  • connecting you to our trusted partners for help with ongoing health and safety, environmental safety, or training issues.

We have saved our clients tens, and even hundreds of thousands of dollars by successfully obtaining cost recoveries on just a single WCB claim.

Further, many of our clients receive regular refunds of WCB premiums as a result of the WCB claim work we conduct on their behalf, year after year.

Your company is likely paying significant attention to managing current and ongoing claims with a view to minimizing costs. We complement your efforts by investing our time and resources, and applying our knowledge and experience, to the audit and recovery of past WCB claim costs which continue to have a direct impact on your bottom line.
