Note 6.2 Reporting of outcomes

In 2015/16 Comcare revised its outcome statement from three outcomes to a single outcome: Outcome 1 - Support participation and productivity through healthy and safe workplaces that minimise the impact of harm in workplaces covered by Comcare. The change was made to better align Comcare's performance framework with Comcare's organisational structure.
