ACC Experience Ratings Released, Adapto are There to Help

ACC Experience Ratings Released, Adapto are There to Help

New Zealand employers are currently being notified of their ACC experience ratings for 2011/12, which will determine the financial impact of the new experience rating system on their ACC levies.

On April 1 2011 ACC introduced the experience rating, a system designed to recognise and reward businesses with less than the industry average of workplace injuries, whilst those with a higher number of claims would face large levy increases.

As a result, over the coming weeks companies nationwide will realise there is a distinct link between reducing work-related injuries and gaining financial benefits from a better experience rating.
In response to this, Adapto Ltd can offer a comprehensive safety programme that is proven to create a safer, healthier workplace with reduced ACC levies moving forward.

Adapto Ltd Managing Director, Dr Paul Reyneke, believes changing the safety culture of any organisation requires more than a tick in a compliance box, and instead focus needs to be placed on three key areas:
1. The physical safety environment
2. The safety behaviour of employees
3. The injury rehabilitation process after an injury occurs.

In the past it has been all too easy for a business to assume they are meeting necessary workplace safety requirements by simply ticking a compliance box/passing an audit.

At Adapto we know that positively influencing the safety behaviour of everyone in an organisation can result in progressive safety habits being embedded into the everyday culture. This, quite simply, is how injury numbers, and the negative ratings they incur, can be reduced,” concludes Reyneke.

Adapto Ltd offers New Zealand’s leading workplace safety programmes. Their unique approach presents more than a way to pass ACC’s standard audit, it also provides a proven way to reduce the frequency of workplace injuries by changing workplace habits. Apart from the obvious benefits of not harming staff, it also has the benefit of reducing the experience rated ACC levies.
