Have you been saddled with a WSIB surcharge? We can help.


The finite valuations of the CAD-7 program can have devastating affects to an employer’s bottom line, resulting in dire financial implications for thousands of companies engaged in the construction industry.

So how can business owners, employers, managers and construction site supervisors help to lower accident rates, encourage a more positive health and safety climate, create greater awareness of workplace risks and help put a lid on the spiraling costs of WSIB surcharges?

The answer is simple: Talk to a Tickner Brooks professional – we can assist in helping you understand your managed risk and provide insight on how to alleviate your CAD-7 costs and calculations. We know the health and safety risks better than anyone.

It’s what we do.

At Tickner Brooks, we will collectively work with you on key safety initiatives to help strengthen your health and safety program and improve your company’s culture of health and safety. Our 30-plus years of first-hand experience handling appeals is a cornerstone of our success. That success is reliant on extensive preparation and presentation of facts.

As Managing Partner of Tickner Brooks, (and President and CEO of Tickner and Associates), our teams have developed and implemented practical and efficient claims-management strategies for many leading employers across the province.

This would include OHS audits and programs; hearing representation on a variety of issues; initial entitlement appeals; pre-existing injuries; ongoing settlements; third-party injuries; rate group classification appeals; and non-cooperation by employees in their recovery and/or return to work process.
