Injury and rehabilitation support
Any Fire and Emergency New Zealand employee who is injured at work can access rehabilitation support through the Injury Management Unit. Fire and Emergency has been an ACC accredited employer for the last 19 years and is committed to providing effective and best practice rehabilitation support.
If you have a work-related injury, someone from the unit will contact you to discuss what support you might need to help your recovery including a return-to-work plan.
Please contact the IMU on 0800 347 306 or contact your manager if you have any questions or concerns about a workplace injury or the rehabilitation process. There’s also more information on the Safety Health and Wellbeing page on the Portal.
Volunteers who are injured while working for Fire and Emergency continue to receive support directly from ACC through the UFBA administered ‘Accident Assurance Scheme'.
And don’t forget, if you have an accident/injury or near miss you need to report it in Safe@Work.
