Workers Compensation

All employers in every state and territory in Australia need to provide workers compensation for their employees.

This insurance covers all workers; full time, part time, casual or employed under a verbal or written contract of service. 

Should you suffer a workplace injury, your employer’s workers’ compensation may provide you with compensation in the form of monetary benefits, medical expense reimbursement if medical treatment is required or rehabilitation assistance to support injury management.

Many types of injuries can occur at work including (but not limited to);

  • Muscle Strains
  • Loss of Hearing
  • Trips and falls
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Cuts and Lacerations
  • Fights at work
