Needlestick injury cover is designed for individuals in the medical and allied occupation professions.
Medical Professions and front line workers are at the forefront of society, consistently battling to save
lives every single day. However, medical professionals such as doctors, nurses and paramedics, among others,
have a significantly higher risk of coming into contact with infection and disease as a result of their
occupation. Needlestick Cover provides them with the financial protection they need while they are out
protecting others and saving lives.
How Does Needlestick Injury Cover Work?
Needlestick Injury Cover pays a lump sum if the policyholder accidentally becomes infected with occupationally
acquired Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C whilst working in their normal occupation.
The Needlestick cover is designed to protect professionals working in an occupation with a heightened risk of coming into contact with the aforementioned diseases.
Needlestick Injury Cover is generally available as an optional extra that can be attached to life insurances.
