Many injuries that are sustained in Aotearoa will require time off work, which means more pressure on your team while you recover.
Around two thirds of the injuries that cause people to be off work occur outside of their workplaces. These preventable injuries are adding significant pressure to workplaces around New Zealand that are already stretched.
To address this, ACC is running a campaign that encourages New Zealanders to think about the impact their own injuries have (or would have) on their workmates.
To encourage people to help keep their workmates injury free ACC has released a series of online videos and other marketing activity that features some activities people receiving weekly compensation are getting injured through. You can view the video’s on the ACC website.
ACC hopes more New Zealanders take the time to ‘have a hmmm’ then do things the smart way. By being injury free people can keep doing what they love and keep making valuable contributions in their workplace.
