A 'no fault' workers' compensation scheme means that Queensland workers have the right to apply for statutory benefits, no matter who or what caused their workplace injury. 

Injuries at work

Stay at work: return to work

Getting back to work early can help with a worker's recovery. Find out about the return to work process, who's involved and what you can do to help.

The recover at work program places injured workers in short term host employment with employers who have an established track record of successful return to work outcomes with their own workers.

WorkCover Queensland supports workers recovering from work-related injuries and may provide weekly compensation, medical and rehabilitation, lump sum, and other benefits.

Rights and responsibilities

Workers and employers have certain rights and responsibilities under workers' compensation legislation.
