FAQ

How are you different to other medical centres for work injuries?

  • By utilising a network of physiotherapists, we can manage acute musculoskeletal injuries as promptly as possible with a physiotherapist that understands your work, workers and workplace. We aim to minimise time off work by recommending appropriate alternative duties and to communicate promptly with managers. Where injuries are more serious or complex we are able to quickly access specialist Occupational Medicine services to provide appropriate investigations and work certification. We know that this approach promotes an earlier return to work

How do you know about the tasks that are done at our workplace?

  • With all prospective clients, we take the time to visit your workplace and understand your business. We document all of this for future reference. We expect to establish a long-term partnership with our client companies and so it’s important that we know you well. We also encourage and assist you to development of appropriate alternative duties so that time off work is minimsed.

Who do you already work with?

  • Our group has contracts in place with organisations diverse as NZ Post, Print mail, Coverstaff International, Readymix concrete and Air New Zealand. We are happy to provide referees should you wish to talk to someone about our service.

What communication can I expect regarding injured employees?

  • The Health and safety officer or appropriate team leader will receive a written report within 24 hours of the injured worker being assessed. This report will clearly lay out the injury, likely duration of incapacity and most importantly describes what alternative duties can be performed by the individual. These will be specific to your work place.

How can the OHC approach save our business money?

  • The main contributor to your ACC levies is the time off work as a result of workplace injuries. Reducing this through early quality intervention, providing alternative duties, appropriate work capacity certification, and good communication can produce major savings in ACC levies, up to 30% in some industries.
