Every year, thousands of Kiwi men and women have to stop work due to accident, injury or health issues. Our goal at Active+ is to get you back to work, so that you can rejoin colleagues and reconnect with your workplace community. We are also here to try and put services in place that can prevent workplace accidents, injuries and overuse problems before they happen.
There are many services that Active+ can offer to support you back into the workplace. We can help with everything from CV development and skills analysis through to occupational therapy where you will be assessed and given a treatment plan to enable you to return to work.
The Active+ difference is that we work closely with our multi-disciplinary teams including Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Vocational Consultants and your own GP, giving you a number of options and tasks to help you to achieve your goals.

Health and Safety at Work:
The introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) which came into effect in 2016 increases the duty of care on employers to proactively manage their work place to ensure risk of injury and harm to their staff is eliminated or minimised. As a responsible employer, we know you will want to do the best by your employees in this regard. Let us help you.
BOOST Cancer Rehabiliation Program:
If you have been off work due to a cancer diagnosis, we have a program of care that involves a team of health professionals to get you back on track, including a return to work and readiness for a return to work plan. This service can be privately funded, however we also work with a number of insurance companies that may be able to fund this program for you, depending on your policy. Talk to your advisor to see if this is a program they are involved in.
