National Return to Work Strategy Overview
Every day, Australians go to work in a variety of workplaces.
Every year more than half a million Australians experience a work-related injury or illness.
This can have a big impact on the worker, their families and their community.
Getting back to work is not always easy. Everyone needs to work together - workers and their employers, health practitioners, rehabilitation providers, insurers, claims managers and more.
That's why Safe Work Australia developed the National Return to Work Strategy - to better support workers in their recovery and return to work.
Evidence and experience tells us where we can make a difference. We’ve identified five action areas that work together to deliver positive outcomes for workers.
