Course Details

Statutory Medicals for Mine and Quarry Workers


This training program is a requirement for doctors completing mandatory medicals for Queensland mine and quarry workers. This training was established following the 2015 re-identification of mine dust lung disease in Queensland. An independent review of the respiratory component of the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme made a number of recommendations for improvement, including a training program for doctors performing health assessments for coal mine workers. This program has now been extended to doctors performing respiratory health surveillance for mineral mine and quarry workers.
