Role of insurers and risk advisers

Insurers and risk advisers have a key role to play in helping experience-rated businesses to take advantage of the incentives and rewards we are introducing.

It’s in the best interests of both employers and employees for businesses to implement best practice systems in order to reduce premiums. This is where insurers and risk advisers have a critical role to play as trusted advisers.

Insurers and risk advisers can help businesses to implement best practice injury management systems, workplace safety programs and loss prevention strategies so that employers minimise their risk of injury, and consequently maximise their ability to receive premium reductions.

If injuries do occur, the role of insurers and risk advisers is to assist employers in getting staff back to work for their recovery. 

By assisting in getting employees back to work as soon as safely possible, insurers and risk advisers will also help businesses to take advantage of incentives and rewards.
