Declining injury rates and payroll growth have helped the Saskatchewan Workers' Compensation Board weather the turbulent investment markets and post a $10.9-million surplus in 2008.

As a result, the WCB won't need to increase employer premiums, which sit at $1.66 per $100 of payroll, to offset the poor investment climate.
