Register for cover

Do I need to register?

If you operate a business that employs workers who usually work in or are based in South Australia, it's likely you will need to register with ReturnToWorkSA. This includes businesses who are based outside of South Australia but who employ workers in the state.

You must register for work injury insurance cover within 14 days of employing. You may apply for cover prior to employing workers.

If you will pay your workers less than $14,920 in total for the 2023-24 financial year, you do not need to register. If one of your workers is injured at work, you must report the injury, register and pay the minimum premium.

If you are not sure whether you need to register your business or would like more information about insurance with ReturnToWorkSA, please call us on 13 18 55 between 8:30am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday or email
