Alternative Workers’ Compensation Schemes

Stepping into the complex and strictly regulated environment of self-insurance may seem daunting, and it’s often difficult to know where to start. Marsh can help you determine if such an approach is right for your organisation and develop an appropriate alternative workers’ compensation scheme.

We can provide a comprehensive overview of the various options, predominantly focusing on assessing the financial feasibility of alternative workers’ compensation schemes within Australia, taking into account the various benefit structures and costs associated with transition and resourcing. This information is compiled into a comprehensive analysis of the overall cost of each scheme.

Our experienced team of WHS consultants are accredited lead auditors and can assess your company’s WHS management systems against the National WHS Self-Insurer Audit Tool (NAT) or other state-based self-insurer models. This process results in valuable feedback regarding eligibility for self-insurance and gives you the opportunity to eliminate any gaps prior to an application. This step is critical in ensuring a successful application and will help set up your organisation for continued improvement in performance.

Once we have determined your financial viability and assessed your eligibility from a WHS perspective, Marsh can present the findings and assist you to make a decision on which workers’ compensation scheme will be most beneficial to your organisation.
