This report provides a comprehensive summary of the 2018 National Return to Work 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 report outlines the experiences of injured workers and the factors that may have an effect on their return to work. While South Australia did not participate in 2018, the Australian Capital Territory participated for the first time. New Zealand ran a separate survey in 2018.
