Under the Return to Work scheme, large businesses operating in South Australia may apply to be self-insured for work injuries as an alternative to insuring with ReturnToWorkSA.

Self-insured status is available to large businesses that demonstrate effective management of work health and safety and work injuries and meet the self-insurance requirements.

Features and benefits

  • greater flexibility in preventing and addressing injuries in your workplace
  • greater oversight of the return to work process for workers with a work injury
  • self-insurance registration periods of up to 5 years.

Self-insured businesses manage their own work injury insurance claims. Workers of self-insured businesses who have had a work injury should speak to their employer about making a claim. The ReturnToWorkSA claim form is available for download if required.
