Do you have workers on a Coal Mining Site?
Section 31 of the Act requires employers in the coal industry to obtain workers compensation insurance from an approved workers compensation company for their employees in that industry. Currently, the approved workers compensation company under the Act is Coal Mines Insurance.

We have benefited from working with the Workers Compensation Division at Warren Saunders Insurance Brokers since 2002. Their expertise and outstanding service has proved invaluable during this time, none more so than most recently when they were able to successfully negotiate a very complex issue that delivered a substantial refund of premium to our business. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to any business within the Retirement Living and Aged Care Industry.

The Warren Saunders claims team continually provides invaluable assistance to the management of claims. They consistently succeed in bringing contentious and difficult issues to a outcome. Their assistance and claims management is first class. I have personally seen the efforts they go to ensure that a client does the right thing by themselves, and their insurer in:setting up meetings, personally attending, explaining the claims process and ensuring everyone involved, witnesses, employees and management provides the evidence needed to defend the claim, and is supported in that process. That is the service. That is support – in times of need. That’s what differentiates Warren Saunders.
