About WorkCover Queensland

WorkCover Queensland is a government owned statutory body, providing workers'  compensation insurance in Queensland since 1997. A self-funded statutory authority, we strive to maintain Australia’s lowest average premium rate by continuously investing in efficient online customer services, experienced in-house claims management capability and sustainable premium and return to work outcomes for employers and injured workers. 

We are a customer  focused insurer and aim for insurance excellence. Despite it being mandatory for  all Queensland employers to hold a WorkCover accident insurance policy (unless employers hold a self-insurance licence), WorkCover is committed to providing a customer experience and value propositions that are equal to or better than commercial insurers.

Our approach is simple:  build lasting, valued relationships with our customers and stakeholders.

This  means understanding and meeting customers' needs and evolving our business  processes to suit these needs. To see what is driving WorkCover Queensland towards our goal of being Australia's leading provider of tailored workers' compensation solutions, visit 'Working your way'.
