The Self Insurers of South Australia (SISA) is an incorporated association that represents most of South Australia’s largest private and public sector employers that are self-insured under the South Australian Return to Work Act 2014. Their membership represents about 36% of the State’s employment by remuneration.
SISA was first incorporated on 3rd August 1984 as the Employer Managed Workers Compensation Association (EMWCA). Although it was known as SISA for many years beforehand, the name was officially changed from EMWCA to SISA in November 2005.
SISA is recognised as the sole representative organisation for self insured employers. It provides its member organisations with assistance and support in their interactions with the return to work scheme and promotes best practice in the prevention and management of workplace injuries.
SISA’s objectives are to promote, develop and support the interests of its members by communication and liaison with ReturnToWorkSA, SafeWork SA, Government, unions and other organisations in regard to self-insurance.
