Self-Insurer in a work injury case & where to find them?

WorkCover QLD is the workers’ compensation insurer established by the QLD Government

This is there to provide workers’ compensation benefits (Statutory Benefits) to workers who are injured in the course of their employment in Queensland, and insurance coverage for the employers of such workers.

WorkCover Queensland was originally established under the Workcover Queensland Act 1996, but since the repeal of that legislation in 2003 it now has its foundations pursuant to the provisions of the Workers’ Compensation & Rehabilitation Act 2003.

WorkCover Queensland is a quasi-governmental body set up specifically to provide assistance to injured workers in Queensland and to ensure that employers are able to meet compensation entitlements to their injured workers.

WorkCover Queensland is not the only workers’ compensation insurer in QLD

There are also what are termed “Self-Insurer’s” workers’ compensation schemes in Queensland.

These are usually very large organisations with the capacity to meet the expense of running their own workers’ compensation schemes under the relevant workers’ compensation legislation in Queensland.

Self-insurers handle and meet the costs of claims made by their workers

Self-insurers handle and meet the costs of claims made by their workers for injuries occurring in the course of their work themselves, but WorkCover Queensland is not involved in such claims.

So where a worker who works for a self-insurer is injured in the course of their work, they make their claim for workers’ compensation or for common law damages, against their employer as the self-insurer under the workers’ compensation scheme in Queensland.
