Oregon has one of the lowest workers’ compensation costs in the nation, with a decreasing trend over the last several years driven by stable costs for lost wages and lower average medical care costs.

For Oregon manufacturers, the cost savings of workers’ compensation insurance can be substantial. In 2016, Oregon manufacturers paid $1.10/$100 of payroll compared to places like California ($3.48/$100 of payroll). As a result, a 50-person company relocating to Oregon could see a six-figure annual savings on this one cost factor alone.

The pure premium rate in Oregon has either remained the same or decreased for 22 of the past 24 years – making this cost among the lowest in the country for employers.
