About SIAV

The Self-insurers Association commenced in August 1985 prior to the commencement of the Accident Compensation Act on 1 September 1985. At that time there were ten self-insurers under the Act. Since then, the number of self-insured employers in Victoria has grown, as has the membership of SIAV. Our membership base has also grown to include affiliate members who provide services to self-insured employers.

SIAV is recognised as a major stakeholder in the workers compensation and occupational health and safety environment in Victoria. We represent self-insured employers from a broad range of industry sectors with diverse operations. We work to understand the needs and interests of our members and represent those views in a variety of forums and to the relevant stakeholders, including WorkSafe and the Government.

Benefits of Self Insurance

WorkSafe Victoria has approved some of the state’s most successful companies as self-insurers.

These businesses have developed robust occupational health and safety management systems to minimise the risk of injury to workers. Should an injury occur, self-insurance encourages direct communication between the employer and worker as a mechanism for proactive injury management, rehabilitation and return to work programs removing the need for third party insurance company involvement.

Efficient workers compensation claims and injury management delivered through WorkCover self-insurance benefits both workers and business through the development of structured and effective injury and claims management processes that support injured workers return to work whilst minimising costs to the business.
