New national stats available
New national Return to Work Survey figures are available.
The latest return to work outcomes for injured workers receiving workers’ compensation are contained in Safe Work Australia’s Return to Work Summary Report (which provides a summary of the National Return to Work survey responses from 2016) and Return to Work Headlines Measure Report (which covers measures taken from the 2016 survey responses).
The biannual survey compares the return to work experiences and outcomes of injured workers against a number of variables, including returning to work, workplace rehabilitation and employer support.
The reports also outline the experiences of injured workers as well as the factors that may have an effect on their return to work.
