Chubb has launched Work from Home (WFH) Insurance for the Asia-Pacific region, helping employers to offer protection to employees working from home amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The new policy, which is considered to be a market-first in the Asia Pacific, is designed to allow employers to care for the well-being of their employees as they work remotely.

Chubb’s work from home insurance covers mental health benefit for the psychological counselling of employees diagnosed with stress disorders due to working remotely.

The other features of the policy include ergonomic injury and prevention benefits for postural injuries/strains resulting from inconsistent workstation setups and coverage for employees who take their work outside or are on the move and are injured.

It also offers coverage for accidental death and permanent disability payments for slips and falls within the home from hazards such as stairs and unkept toys.

Chubb Asia-Pacific regional accident & health deputy head Ben Howell has been quoted by Insurance Business as saying: “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.
