Return to Work Strategy
A decade-long plan to improve outcomes for workers starts now. Welcome to the commencement of the National Return to Work Strategy. The strategy is a significant national policy initiative of Safe Work Australia. It aims to drive national action to improve Return to Work rates for workers with a work-related injury or illness and to get better outcomes for each individual worker.
Collaboration was key to development of the strategy and is the key to its success. It leverages actions already taking place across Australia. Safe Work Australia members will work collectively and individually to engage the sector, implement the strategy, and measure its success. We all have an important part to play. The strategy is a broad evidence-based framework. So those involved in return to work can determine how they can best contribute to workers recovery and capacity to work. I trust this strategy will inspire you to action. Whatever your role in the Return to Work process.
