Coal Mines Insurance Scheme NSW
by: Honan Marketing

Update to the NSW Coal Mines Insurance scheme

With changes to the Coal Industry Act 2001 that will come into effect on 1 July 2018, here are the key updates you need to be across to ensure you’re compliant.

What you need to know:

  • As of 1 July 2018, any employer of employees who work in or about a coal mine will be required to be insured for workers compensation
  • The approved workers compensation company under the Act is Coal Mines Insurance
  • A three-month grace period from July (by 1 October) has been granted to allow sufficient time for employers to ensure compliance
