Injury managment

Effective Injury Management

In 2022, Stats NZ recorded 283,241 work-related injury claims in New Zealand, with 143,900 of them related to soft tissue injuries, such as ligaments, tendons, and muscles throughout the body. Many of these injuries may have been prevented through education and awareness.

Workplace injuries impact employee well-being, business productivity, and costs. Life Care supports the assessment and rehabilitation of workplace injuries, minimising disruption to your business and helping injured employees safely return to work.

Achieving This:

Immediate decisions following a workplace injury significantly influence recovery and return-to-work outcomes. Life Care provides priority access to our nationwide network of over 500 allied health professionals for specialist diagnostic injury triage assessments. This quick and accurate confirmation of injuries enhances visibility and participation in the recovery process for both you and your employees.

At Life Care Injury Management, we will ensure early and accurate diagnosis, along with appropriate timely treatment leading to a faster and more durable return to work. This reduces downtime, promotes recovery, limits unnecessary doctors’ visits and decreases the burden of ACC.
