Your Future Your Super Review

Cbus is pleased that the Government has acknowledged the importance of access to appropriate insurance for workers in hazardous industries.

Insurance through super has always been a key pillar of economic security for blue collar workers and their families.

The failure to include a hazardous occupations exemption in the original legislation ignored the importance of insurance to workers in physically demanding industries.

Statistically the most vulnerable workers of all in the workplace are young workers new to a job. Following the introduction of stapling, Cbus has seen an increase in apprentices and young people on construction sites without any level of insurance cover for hazardous work.

We look forward to working with government to address the pressing insurance needs of workers across Australia in hazardous occupations.
