Accident Insurance Policy

If you would like to take out an accident insurance policy with WorkCover Queensland, you can either apply for a policy online or call us on 1300 362 128. Applying for a policy will take between 5 to 15 minutes of your time.

Who can set up a policy?

Any authorised person from an employer can set up a policy. Examples of an authorised person include a director of a company, internal accountant, finance officer, or a wife/husband of a sole trader.

Trust as an employing entity

If your workers are paid by a trust, we require the trustee's (i.e. a company, partnership or sole trader) information as they will be the policyholder.
