Dear <<First Name>>,

We are very honoured (and ecstatic!) to have won the award for 'Outstanding Health Improvement Services' in the Liverpool Local Business Awards. As  a team we sure enjoyed our moment in the limelight!  

A very big THANK YOU for your continued support, loyalty and partnership.

So, thank you again for your  support and we can't wait to see what the rest of 2015 has in store for us!

EVENTS
DID YOU KNOW?

- Everyday, 10 tradies are badly injured at work. That's 3650 tradies a year on Workers Compensation.

- The majority of injuries sustained by tradies are musculo-skeletal strains to the back, neck and shoulders caused by poor lifting techniques.

This can be avoided by conducting Manual Handling training! Give us a ring for a free tailored quote for your business!

WORKCOVER PREMIUM REFORMS
As you are aware, WorkCover NSW introduced premium reforms for medium to large businesses as of the 1st July 2015. With this roll-out come a number of incentives geared towards employers of all sizes.

Avoid the claim excess
If one of your workers suffers a workplace injury, you can avoid paying a claims excess by notifying your insurance agent or insurer within five calendar days of you becoming aware of the injury.

Apprentice Incentive Scheme
Under this scheme, if you employ an apprentice then you're entitled to a premium reduction based on the wages paid to your apprentice.
The scheme aims to:
  • grow NSW's skill base
  • encourage employers to hire apprentices
  • improve workers compensation outcomes over time because trained workers are less likely to be injured at work.
To be eligible for the reduction you must:
  • have a valid workers compensation policy
  • have entered into a State Training Services approved contract with the apprentice. The apprentice must be identified in the training contract.
Your insurance agent will calculate the apprentice incentive amount based on details you provide in your wages declaration forms.

Employer safety incentive 
Small employers 
You will get a 10 per cent Employer Safety Incentive (ESI) premium discount at the beginning of each policy period.
Make your workplace safe. If all your injured workers are returned to suitable work within four weeks of the date of injury, with no ongoing requirement for payment of weekly compensation, you can keep the 10 per cent discount when your hindsight premium is calculated.

Experience rated employers
Experience-rated employers will receive a 10 per cent Employer Safety Incentive (ESI) premium discount at policy renewal. This provides an opportunity for employers to invest the savings in workplace safety.

Employer safety reward (experience-rated employers only)
An employer safety reward (ESR) discount of 5 per cent will be applied at the end of the insurance period for experience-rated employers who have not incurred any premium-impacting claims in the previous four consecutive policy periods.

Return to work incentive
Small employers 
You will receive a 10 per cent Return to Work Incentive (RTWI) premium discount, instead of the ESI, if all your injured workers return to suitable work with no ongoing requirement for payment of weekly compensation, between four and thirteen weeks from the date of injury.

Experience rated employers
For claims made against a policy that commences or renews on or after 30 June 2015, a return to work incentive discount (5, 10 or 15%) will be applied to the cost of each claim with a sustainable return to work outcome up to 52 weeks. The higher discounts apply to shorter return to work outcomes.
Interested in how can you be eligible for these discounts?
