ACC and ExerciseNZ combine to reduce gym accidents
The Accident Compensation Corporation and the Exercise Association of New Zealand (ExerciseNZ) have partnered together to focus on reducing accident rates and costs in the gym and fitness industry.
With ACC having earlier this year advised that it was noting a rise in injuries among people exercising in gyms, the partnership is to undertake research in order to identify what is driving these issues.
To help the industry manage risk, ExerciseNZ is also releasing a number of tools to exercise professionals to help ensure they get the basics right - everything from a resource for understanding the basics of health and safety through to pre-screening tools for exercise professionals and exercise facilities to use with clients (pre-screening is one essential process to ensure any potential contra-indicated activities for an individual are identified early).
Access to the pre-screening forms (and comprehensive supporting guide) is currently available free to any exercise professionals registered with REPs New Zealand.
