Background

From 1 March 2019, retired and former coal mine, mineral mine and quarry workers (former workers) are eligible for a Queensland Government-funded respiratory health assessment. The health assessment consists of a respiratory function examination and a chest X-ray examination to detect mine dust lung diseases such as coal workers’ pneumoconiosis and silicosis. The first step in the process is to complete an application form to ensure you meet the eligibility requirements.

Question Title

1. Have you submitted a Former Worker Assessment Application Form to the Health Surveillance Unit of Resources Safety & Health Queensland in the last 12 months?
If yes, you will be asked to provide some personal details so that we can arrange your free assessment.
If no, you will proceed to assess your eligibility.
