What WorkSafe Agents do

WorkSafe Agents are organisations appointed by WorkSafe to manage employers' WorkCover insurance and injured workers' compensation claims.

These organisations perform most of the functions associated with premium and claims management. They also provide advice to help injured workers return to work.

Changing WorkSafe Agents

You can change your WorkSafe Agent once during a 12 month period. That means:

  • after you change Agents you must remain with that Agent for at least 12 months
  • after you've reached the minimum 12 month period you're free to change Agents again if you choose to.

If you're a new employer and have recently taken out WorkCover insurance:

  • you must wait 12 months from the date you registed with the original Agent
  • wait until the end of the current financial year.
Important information
  1. Cover notes: If you're issued a cover note by an Agent, you're not obliged to take out WorkCover insurance with that Agent – you can still register with another Agent. If you do choose to register with a different Agent, it's the Agent that issued the cover note's responsibility to cancel it
  2. Outstanding premium payments: When you change Agents you mustn't owe any outstanding premium payments (annual or instalment) to the current Agent
  3. Time frames: Your effective transfer date will be the first day of the next month, but the new Agent must make sure transfer requests are received by your current Agent at least five working days before the first of the month
  4. Request your transfer in writing: Your request must be in writing and be signed by someone with authorisation. You should send your request directly to your new Agent.
