Workers’ compensation: Safe Work Australia launches anti-stigma campaign
A new awareness campaign that aims to reduce workers’ compensation stigma has been launched.
Research shows a third of workers thought their colleagues would treat them differently if they knew they were injured or sick.
Safe Work Australia says the campaign includes ‘resources to help empower employers, supervisors and workers to reduce workers’ compensation stigma, including fact sheets, case studies and posters with practical advice and information.’
The workers’ compensation stigma campaign has been developed in partnership with Safe Work Australia Members, under the National Return to Work Strategy 2020–2030.
Additional information is available on the Safe Work Australia website.
