In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing work-from-home trend , Chubb launched work from home insurance in Hong Kong yesterday to enable employers to care for the health, safety and well-being of their employees who are working remotely now. 

Highlights of the scheme include payment for psychological counselling of employees diagnosed with stress disorders due to working from home, ergonomic injury benefits for postural or ergonomic stress or strains, accidental death or permanent disability payments due to an accident at home or serious burns received as a result of cooking while working from home, and coverage for employees who are injured whilst carrying out their work away from their residence.

"Technological advancements have allowed people to stay connected, and flexible work arrangements may remain a part of every employee's work week and expectations even after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. It is timely for Chubb to launch the work from home Insurance to help employers meet the evolving employee care and benefit needs," said Stanley Wong, president of Chubb's general insurance business in Hong Kong.
