Despite the jurisdictional nature of workers compensation in Australia there are common themes: All premiums are experience rated regardless of state or territory. All industries have a premium rate baseline with the exception of NT (insurers book rate). The industry baseline is then either loaded or discounted depending on workers compensation claims cost performance. Premium rate is largely derived from the historical claims performance.
In the risk states (WA, TAS, NT and ACT) five years historical performance is relied upon. In NSW, QLD and VIC a three year claims history is relied upon. Sales, HR, IT and management are usually considered incidental activities. WA, TAS, NT, ACT and VIC continue to estimate for likely future claims costs incurred.
