How to comply with the self insurer permit conditions

Self insurer permit conditions cover general requirements, prudential requirements, occupational health and safety management, injury and claims management, exit provisions and data reporting requirements.

While permit conditions are unique to each self insurer permit holder, you can read typical permit conditions in this Permit Conditions document (PDF, 77.9 KB).

The Board may amend or modify a self-insurer’s permit conditions as deemed necessary.

Injury and claims management

You must monitor your injury and claims management system through annual self-assessments and external audits. See how to conduct the annual self assessment and WorkCover surveillance audits.

Exit provisions

If you decide to surrender your permit to self-insure, there are conditions that must be met. See How to apply to cease being a permit holder.

Data reporting requirements

You must submit data to the Board within the specified time frames.

You must at all times review data to ensure that accurate information is being provided to the Board.
