At QBE we’ve learned that more data and insights allows us to provide the right level of cover for you. Plus with our market-leading claims innovation and analytics, we’re able to achieve smoother case management, faster returns to work, and reduce costs. It’s all part of what we do before & after to protect what’s most important - your people.

Workers Compensation is an insurance policy that’s compulsory for most employers. If one of your people is injured or becomes sick in the course of their work, it will help them cover any medical expenses, rehabilitation costs and loss of earnings. This helps injured workers recover and get back to work and minimises the human and financial impacts of workplace injuries.

We are committed to ongoing learning to support our customers through Q Academy and focused on community and sustainability. Either way, QBE Workers Compensation adds up to better outcomes for people and better financial outcomes for your business.
