POLICY ONE - Personal accident and illness group policy

Personal accident and illness insurance is available to both employee and self-employed contract members of the Transport Workers Unions of Australia Qld Branch.

POLICY TWO  - Public liability

Public liability insurance is only required by self employed contract members of the Transport Workers Union of Australia Qld Branch. This policy covers your legal liability for injury to members of the public and or damage to their property arising in the course of operating your business as an owner driver.

It does not cover any liability arising from the actual use of your vehicle as such cover is picked up by either your compulsory third party insurance or your motor vehicle property damage policy.

POLICY THREE - Carriers goods in transit insurance

Also known as transit insurance, this policy is designed to cover loss of freight while in your custody in transit. Required by self employed contract members of the Transport Workers Union of Australia Qld Branch. This is not a carriers legal liability policy and excludes dangerous, hazarous and prime mover refrigirated goods.

POLICY FOUR - Journey insurance

This policy covers loss of weekly income and capital benefits arising from an injury whilst the Insured is travelling directly between his or her place of residence, and place of business; subject to no cover being granted where there is a valid Workcover Authority or Motor Accidents Authority compensation claim covering the same event.
