Chubb launches Work From Home Insurance
Chubb announced the launch of Work from Home Insurance, “a market-first in Asia Pacific.” The new product has been tailored to enable employers to continue to care for the health, safety and wellbeing of their employees while they work remotely.
- Mental health payment for the psychological counseling of employees diagnosed with stress disorders due to working from home
- Ergonomic injury and prevention benefits for postural injuries/strains resulting from inconsistent workstation setups
- Accidental death and permanent disability payments for slips and falls within the home from hazards such as stairs and unkept toys
- Coverage for employees who take their work outside or are on the move and are injured
“Chubb anticipates that companies will continue to encourage workspace flexibility even as lockdown measures are easing across the region. Although employees have adjusted well to being digitally connected from home via videoconferencing and other applications, there are emerging risks as a result of this new work arrangement. It is timely for Chubb to launch our Work from Home Insurance to meet the evolving employee care and benefit needs.” – Ben Howell, Deputy Head of Regional Accident & Health at Chubb in Asia Pacific.
