ACC has two workplace safety programmes worth knowing about. They each reward employers with good workplace safety practices that build safer workplaces.
ACC Workplace Safety Discount
ACC’s Workplace Safety Discount programme rewards the self-employed and small to medium businesses that implement sound health and safety practices. This is an opportunity to have your workplace health and safety systems recognised with a 10% discount on your Worker Levies.
ACC’s brochure says the Workplace Safety Discount rewards those businesses with a proven commitment to reducing injuries in their workplace. This in turn reduces the costs of staff absence, reduced productivity, official investigations, and the personal, professional and social impacts for the injured people themselves.
ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices
ACC’s Workplace Safety Management Practices programme is designed for large and medium employers. It rewards employers who build safer workplaces.
In exchange for putting in place systems and processes that promote injury prevention, the programme gives employers a discount of 10%, 15% or 20% on their standard ACC WorkPlace Cover levies.
And if your business is structured so that you are both self-employed and an employer, then the discount could also apply to your self-employed ACC levies, for example ACC CoverPlus or ACC CoverPlus Extra.
ACC’s programme can strengthen your existing health and safety systems. Here are some of the programme’s benefits…
- Works to reduce injuries.
- Gives you an audited, national safety framework to work to.
- Proves your safety commitment to staff.
- Demonstrates your commitment to customers, the business community and the public.
- Rewards you with ACC levy discounts.
