The Willis Towers Watson Workplace Risk Practice provides specialist Workers' Compensation and Safety solutions to New Zealand businesses.

We specialise in three core areas of Workplace Risk including:

  • ACC
  • Self Insurance
  • Safety

Our primary focus is to partner your organisation to deliver measurable performance improvement and cost savings.

We help you to:

  • Understand the current cost of ACC

  • Determine the size of opportunities and threats
  • Consider options
  • Provide recommendations to deliver maximum return on effort


We deliver a three-staged approach to help your organisation achieve Sustained Performance Improvements:

  • Performance Assessment
  • Tactical Approach
  • Strategic Approach

Our Workplace Risk team has a proven track record in obtaining premium reductions for New Zealand Businesses.  This success is attributed to the application of our Sustained Performance Improvement Model and our 'partnership' approach with employers and other key stakeholders.

Through this approach we consider the following questions relevant to your business:

Performance Assessment:What is the current position?  What are the threats and opportunities?  What are our options and how can we take control?

Tactical Approach: What can we do to achieve immediate savings? What must we do to comply with OH&S Legislation?  How can we better manage injuries?  How can we stop regular claims from occurring? Services We Provide

Strategic Approach: Should we be Self Insured or Traditionally Insured? What are our workplace risk plans and priorities?  Who is responsible for making sure that our plans are implemented?  How will we measure results? What are the consequences for poor performance?  What is the reward for good performance?


  • Confirm your workplace risk position
  • Identify opportunities & threats
  • Provide recommendations on how to take control
  • Identify immediate short term outcomes
  • Introduce alternative programs to assist in managing ACC, ie. Safety
  • Identify long term objectives
