Construction Industry Insurance Workers Compensation

June 24 2015   01 PM  

Injury, illness or death in the workplace can cause severe hardship to your workers, their families, and your business. For this reason it's important that you have adequate protection. As an employer, it's your responsibility to maintain current workers' compensation insurance to protect against financial hardship as a result of a workplace accident.

You must provide accident and sickness insurance for your employees - workers compensation - through an approved insurer. Workers compensation is covered by separate state and territory legislation which has its own requirements, definitions, cover, rates and responsibilities for employers and it's up to you to ensure you are compliant in your state.

We've compiled a list of governing bodies, broken down by state below:

  1. ACT -
  2. NSW -
  3. VIC -
  4. SA -
  5. WA -
  6. TAS -
