Safe Work Australia announces the National Return to Work Strategy 2020-2030

Monday 30 September 2019

The Strategy sets an ambitious 10-year action plan to improve return to work outcomes for workers across Australia.

It was developed in partnership with governments, business, industry and unions, and endorsed by work health and safety ministers. Consultation was also undertaken with academics, peak bodies, organisations and representatives from the insurance, legal and health sectors to help identify national policy issues and action areas to address them.

The return to work process can be complex and involves a range of stakeholders. The Strategy aims to better support workers through this process, and help stakeholders to do the same. Improving national return to work outcomes can be achieved through the commitment and participation of all stakeholders who participate in the return to work process.
