Workers' Compensation is a compulsory statutory form of insurance for all employers in every state and territory in Australia and provides protection to workers if they suffer a work-related injury or disease. Any business that employs or hires workers on a full-time, part-time or casual basis, under an oral or written contract of service or apprenticeship, must have workers compensation insurance that covers all workers.
Handling the cost and statutory obligations of a workers compensation policy can be a significant challenge for any business, be it a large and complex organisation, or one taking its first steps. At Austbrokers SPT, we have extensive experience dealing with the workers compensation system. In particular, we have tailored our services in this area with an emphasis on lowering premiums and providing advice on reducing workplace hazards.
As an employer, adequate workers compensation cover is critical to your business and the welfare of your workers. Please contact our office for further information or to request a review of your current arrangements.
