When it comes to car and home insurance it’s often top of mind. Yet nothing is more important than one’s life and the ability to make a living
It, therefore, makes good sense to ensure you have the necessary financial protection in place for your body corporate and others who work on your property in case of injury when it comes to repairs and maintenance for common areas. This is why WorkCover insurance has been introduced in Queensland.
If you’re a contractor, a self-employed individual, a director of a company, a partner of a partnership, or a trustee of a trust, getting workplace personal injury insurance through WorkCover Queensland is essential. WorkCover provides protection in the event of an injury and being unable to work as a result.
Many bodies corporate don’t consider this type of insurance as essential though given in most cases WorkCover is covered by the service provider. However, what happens if an owner volunteers to do a repairs job? Or a contractor without adequate insurance cover is appointed directly by the body corporate?
Our team at Body Corporate Services (BCS) has many unhappy stories to tell when bodies corporate has an inadequate cover, so to avoid this happening to you here’s some key information you should know.
