New return to work reports released
Safe Work Australia has published two national Return to Work Survey reports that 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.
The Return to Work Headlines Measure Report provides a simple overview which includes two key measures taken from the 2016 survey responses.
The survey is undertaken on a biannual basis and 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 outline the experiences of injured workers and the factors that may have an effect on their return to work.
