About WorkCover Queensland

WorkCover Queensland is a government owned statutory body, providing workers' compensation insurance in Queensland since 1997. As a self-funded statutory body, we strive to maintain the lowest possible average premium rate by continuously investing in efficient online customer services and experienced in-house claims management capability to support employers and make a positive difference to the lives of 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). We maintain high return to work rates by partnering with our customers and stakeholders.

We are passionate about striking the right balance between keeping premium costs low for employers and providing injured workers with access to rehabilitation and the best possible return to work support. This means understanding and meeting customer needs and evolving our business processes to suit these needs.
