WorkCover Queensland is a government owned statutory body, providing workers’ compensation insurance in Queensland since 1997. We are self-funded and operate as an independent, commercial enterprise, with income derived from premiums paid by employers and returns on our invested funds. As a not-for-profit entity, excess funds are returned to employers and workers through premium rate reductions, improved benefits and better services.

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), WorkCover strives to be competitive with commercial insurers. Our approach is simple: build lasting, valued relationships with our customers and stakeholders. This means understanding and meeting customers’ needs and evolving our business processes to suit these needs.
