Not known to many employers but ACC have a couple of options available to employers whereby they can reduce their ACC costs.


The first is called the Workplace Safety Discount and is available for small employers (less than 10 staff) and involved in either: agriculture, construction, fishing, forestry, motor trades, road transport or waste management.

You may be eligible for a discount of 10% on your costs.  See the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz/wsd for more information.  The programme is about demonstrating good health and safety management practices.

There is talk that this plan will be opened up to other industries.


Large employers may be eligible for discounts of between 10% – 20% under the ACC Workplace Safety Management Programme.  This involves having a robust Health & Safety plan in place and  independently audited.

See www.acc.co.nz/wsmp for more details.

Other things in the pipeline is the possible return of No Claim Discounts which rewards employers with good accident histories.
