Allianz and Teys assist injured workers back to health

20 October 2017

Allianz reaffirms its commitment to the Riverina region by providing risk management funds to beef wholesaler and retailer Teys to open a new Fitness and Condition centre for its employees in Wagga Wagga.

The centre, designed to help injured workers back to health while at work, provides access to onsite medical staff, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists. Treadmills, cross trainers, weights and resistance training equipment will also be made available to help employees improve their strength and fitness.

During its 27 year partnership with Teys, Allianz has invested in a range of injury mitigation initiatives across the organisation, with the Wagga Wagga centre being just one initiative.

The original fitness centre in Tamworth opened in September 2016 and has proven invaluable to Teys’ employees in preventing injury and getting workers back to health. With workers not having to leave their worksite, the centre has seen a significant reduction in the time taken to access treatment. Teys has also seen a reduction in time lost on work related injury claims.

Allianz’s NSW Client Service Manager, Steven Autrey, said “Allianz is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to support people who are recovering from a work-related injury. We are incredibly proud to partner with Teys on this initiative and we look forward to seeing employees benefit from the program”.
