Time to renew your WorkCover accident insurance policy

For businesses insured by WorkCover Queensland’s accident insurance policy, which provides coverage for work-related injuries to employees, your renewal is due. This renewal is a crucial part of your Bluesafe WHS Management System, contributing significantly to maintaining a safe working environment. You are required to provide us with your wages information no later than 31 August 2024, enabling the computation of your 2024-25 insurance premium.

If you need assistance, consider making use of our detailed Declaration of Wages Guide. Or, opt for our step-by-step online renewal assistance. The inclusion of such tools in your WHS system, much like the Bluesafe SWMS, fosters smooth and efficient compliance processes.

Timely renewals are essential, not only for compliance but also for leveraging our flexible payment options*. Please note that certain discounts and payment options, such as the apprentice discount, will cease to be available should you fail to declare your wages by the set deadline of 31 August 2024.

*It is important to mention that the discounted premium price will not dip below $200.

By now, an Interim Certificate of Insurance should have reached you via email, providing coverage from 1 July 2024 to 30 September 2024. If you’ve not received this or require another copy, it can easily be downloaded at any time. Keep this documentation on hand as part of your standard operational policies and WHS management systems for easy reference.

To secure full coverage for the entire year until 30 June 2025 and receive your complete Certificate of Currency, it’s necessary to either pay your premium outright or commit to a convenient payment plan. Timely renewals also offer access to our varied flexible payment options and valuable discounts.

For more information, feel welcome to visit our website or get in touch with us directly. In the spirit of maintaining a comprehensive safety system like the Bluesafe SWMS, staying informed is essential.
