National return to work survey

Australia’s return to work survey collects data on those who received workers’ compensation for a work‑related illness or injury.

The statistics include headline measures and trends in the outcomes of ill and injured workers who are currently receiving or have previously received workers compensation, to better understand their experiences and the factors that influenced their return to work. This includes the number of return to work attempts, work duties, general health, healthcare access and aspects of the claim process.
