Employers on the Sunshine Coast are being urged by WorkCover Queensland to do more to protect employees against injuries.

In July, a compliance audit found that 22% of 188 employers visited had been operating without the necessary workers’ compensation insurance.

Employers who don’t insure workers, according to WorkCover, are putting the health and safety of workers at risk and exposing their business to potentially significant financial penalties.

WorkCover said that while most employers were doing what’s right, there were many who still ignored their obligations.
