Group Personal Accident (GPA)
Accidents happen, in the workplace more than anywhere else and to a large extent, with more severity. To cushion staff, an employer may opt to take the Group Accident Cover to ensure employees’ welfare is taken care of. This is the equivalent of a Personal Accident Cover for each employee although it differs from an Individual Personal Cover because the company itself pays premiums for each employee
The Group Personal Accident covers your employees on a full-time basis unlike the Work Injury Benefits Act/ Employers Liability policy which is strictly defined and only covers employees when they are at work (usually 8am-5pm or 8-hour work shift). GPA is flexible and the benefits payable under this policy may be fixed as multiples of employee’s earnings or as fixed sum per person dependent on the employer’s contractual obligations and financial ability.
Whereas the Work Injury benefits Act/Employers Liability cover provides protection for your legal liability to compensate employees for injuries resulting from accidents at work, the Group Personal Accident cover is a twenty four (24) hour benefit policy and applies on the occurrence of an injury.
