Coordination

Through a partnership of governments, employers and employees, Safe Work Australia leads the development of national policy to improve work health and safety and workers’ compensation arrangements across Australia.

Australian Government — Comcare





  • the Return to Work Survey that replaced the Return to Work Monitor previously published by the Heads of Workers’ Compensation Authorities. The New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation and all Australian jurisdictions except for the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory took part in the survey, the full results of which can be accessed at swa.gov.au.

  • The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) provides estimates of the number of employees and hours worked based on the Labour Force Survey, the Survey of Employment and Earnings and data provided by Comcare. Further adjustments are performed using data from the Census, the Forms of Employment Survey and the Survey of Employment Arrangements, Retirement and Superannuation.

There are two important changes that have been implemented in this report:




  1. The estimates of the number of employees and hours worked that are used

to calculate incidence and frequency rates have been revised back to 2007-08 by the ABS in line with the 2011 census and other new employment information. Incidence and frequency rates published in this report will differ to those previously published in earlier editions of the report


  1. The definition of a serious claim has been revised to align with the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022. The change in the definition means that two sets of rates are presented in this report. In chapter 1, the previous definition of a serious claim applies for final reporting against the National Occupational Health and Safety Strategy 2002-2012 (National Strategy). In chapters 2 and 6, the new definition of a serious claim applies. Use of either definition of serious claims shows similar patterns of improvement at the national and jurisdictional level.
