Motor Trades – Can you afford an injury in the workplace?

No matter how hard you’ve tried to create a safe workplace, you still may find yourself facing a workplace injury claim. In a work environment where employees are using tools, operating machinery and moving vehicles, work place injuries are a high risk.

 

As an employer, it’s simply impossible to plan for every possible scenario that could lead to an injury.  However, the onus is on the Employer to create a Safe Workplace. If you fail to do so, you can be investigated and fined by Safe Work Australia.

 

Recently, a business was fined close to $600,000 when two of its employees got into a physical fight.

 

The average Workplace claim can cost your business over $100,000. The legal costs to defend yourself against an investigation can be tens of thousands of dollars.

 

Mistakes can happen, and employees can be injured while at work. Management Liability Insurance is designed to protect you and your business in the event you are investigated or fined due to a workplace injury.
