Safe Work Australia has published two national Return to Work Survey reports. The reports present the latest return to work outcomes for injured workers receiving workers’ compensation.
The Return to Work Summary Report provides a comprehensive summary of the National Return to Work survey responses from 2016, while the Return to Work Headlines Measure Report provides a simple overview which includes two key measures taken from the 2016 survey responses.
Undertaken on a biannual basis, the 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.
