If a WISE employee is injured at your workplace, you should contact the person's WorkSafe agent. The agent will decide whether the injury is related to the original claim, or they may ask for a new WorkSafe claim to be lodged.
If the person's injury is related to the original claim, their previous employer is responsible for any costs.
If the person's injury is new and sustained as part of their new employment, you will need to pay the employer excess for the new claim. The employer excess is the first 10 days of weekly payments, and the first $763 of medical and like expenses (indexed annually), unless you selected the excess buyout option on your WorkCover insurance premium.
Your WorkCover insurance premium won't change if the person sustains a new or recurring injury in the first 2 years after their WISE employment start date. If the person's injury is new and sustained as part of their new employment, it still won't affect your premium.
If the new employer is self-insured for workplace injuries, or is an interstate or Commonwealth Government employer, they are not eligible for WorkSafe's injury insurance premium protection.
For WISE placements that started before 5 September 2016, injury insurance premium protection only applies for injuries that occurred in the first 12 months after the WISE start date.
