Self-insurance

The Workers' Compensation Regulator regulates all insurers in Queensland, which includes WorkCover Queensland and self-insured employers under the Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 (PDF, 1.99 MB) (WCR Act).

As part of the Workers' Compensation Regulator's self-insurer performance management program, the Queensland Treasury, through Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ), is responsible for the administration of work health and safety (WHS) performance requirements for current and prospective self-insurers in Queensland.

This role requires that WHSQ:

  • undertakes compliance checks of self-insurer WHS performance
  • coordinates WHS management system audits with new and existing self-insured employers
  • reports on audit findings to the Workers' Compensation Regulator
  • accredits suitably qualified WHS professionals to undertake WHS management system audits of potential and existing self-insured employers
  • maintains a register of accredited WHS management systems auditors (self-insurance).

The following guides outline the legislative and administrative requirements of these functions:
