Insurance & Workers Compensation – General Information for Tradies

As a tradie, you are largely dependent on your physical ability to earn a living. So, what would happen if you fell ill or had an accident? Would you be able to continue your current lifestyle? A report by a major Australian insurer (2017) showed that the occupations with the most insurance claims are carpenters and electricians.
