2021 National Return to Work Report


This is a must read for any staff, including Managers and Directors with responsibilities in WHS, Injury Management, Return-to-Work and People & Culture.


Safe Work Australia has recently published highlights from the 2021 National Return to Work Survey, including key metrics, insights and time series data. The survey also included a section on COVID-19 and its impact on recovery and return to work. The National Return to Work Survey measures outcomes of ill and injured workers receiving workers’ compensation to better understand their experiences and factors that may influence their return to work.


Key findings from the survey include:

• The vast majority (91.6%) of all workers surveyed in 2021 reported having returned to work at some time since their work-related injury or illness.

• 81.3% of workers reported they had returned to work at some stage since their work-related injury or illness and were currently working.

• Of those respondents asked about the impact of COVID-19 on their recovery and return to work most stated that the pandemic had no impact (around 73%).
