What our clients say
At Upright Scaffolding our people are very important to us. On the rare occasion that we have an incident at work we want to help our people get back into work, which not only benefits them but also their families. The team at Southern Rehab understand our business and the work that we do. Through this positive relationship together we can implement a Return to Work Plan or identify appropriate light duty tasks that suit the individual and ultimately help with the recovery to full fitness. The team at Southern Rehab give us the confidence that we are assigning the correct tasks to our people without causing more injuries. They are always only a phone call away to assist with decision making and I have always found them to be friendly and willing to help in a positive way.Nick Pfahlert Director, Upright Scaffolding Ltd
The meat processing industry requires our employees to perform many varied and demanding tasks, of which many are deemed repetitive. The Southern Rehab team have provided many years of excellent advice, treatment and support. Alongside the weekly clinics on plant they also provide assistance and expertise with injury reduction and prevention. Assistance with implementing task rotations and workstation design has also been instrumental in the continued reduction of our workplace ‘lost time’ and medical treatment injuries. The Southern Rehab team approach fits in well with our Group commitment to get our employees home safe and well every day.Steve Blenkiron Alliance, Nelson HR / IMO

Southern Rehab have been working closely with Waimakariri District Council over the past two years to provide return to work assessments, ergonomic assessments, fit-for-work assessments, and training. At all times Sabrina and her team have been responsive, professional and communicative, and they provide a practical, solutions-focused service to our teams. Sabrina and her team are knowledgeable in their fields of expertise, and their services are very competitive. They have therefore been asked to be a preferred supplier for WDC's ergonomic assessments and ergonomic training when required. They have worked closely with our in-house ergonomic assessor, and provided valuable advice and support in this area.Charlotte Brownie Waimakariri District Council
