Apr 19, 2017

April 20, 2017 – Chubb launched today a suite of Accident and Health (A&H) coverage in Australia for the retail, healthcare and technology sectors which have unique requirements when safeguarding employees.

The new tailored solutions – Healthcare Staff Protection Insurance, Retail Staff Protection Insurance and Technology Staff Protection Insurance – offer wide-ranging accident, injury and disability benefits to help businesses protect themselves and their employees against common and emerging risks their employees may face.

Designed to help keep retail, technology and healthcare employees covered wherever they may be working, the new products can be offered in addition to the standard employee compensation schemes many companies provide. Key benefits of the cover for firms and their employees are (but are not limited to):

  • Wide-ranging work hours coverage including assault, trauma and stress benefits
  • Terrorism benefits for employees
  • Assistance and security advice services, including emergency 24-hour Chubb Travel and Medical Assistance plus crisis management assistance via red24.

Each of the new A&H solutions for the retail, technology and healthcare sectors will be backed by Chubb’s proven expertise in global A&H programs, and supported by the outstanding claims service Chubb is renowned for.

John French, Chubb Country President for Australia and New Zealand, said: “From our research, we have found there is significant opportunity for the retail, healthcare and technology sectors to improve levels of cover for their employees. Chubb can now offer products to better protect businesses and employees in these important sectors of the Australian economy."

“No matter where they are working, or if they travel for business, employees face risks while going about their job. Chubb’s new A&H solutions for retail, healthcare and technology businesses have been crafted to provide an increased level of protection and assurance."
