ACC has launched a new vocational rehabilitation service to focus on early return to work after an injury. The service is delivered by rehabilitation professionals and offers the following:

  • Standalone Workplace Assessment (which reviews the client's workplace to identify how they did their job prior to their injury);
  • Stay at Work service (which supports people to return to their job);
  • Work Readiness service (which rehabilitates people ready for new types of employment); and
  • Job Placement (which helps people find new jobs).

According to ACC, a hallmark of the service is speed of delivery to get injured employees back into the workforce faster. Services will be provided by nine regional and national vocational rehabilitation suppliers, who will work closely with ACC.

More information is available here (under vocational rehabilitation).
