Coal Mine Workers Health Scheme

The Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme (formerly QLD Coal Board Medical) protects the health and safety of Queensland coal mine workers by ensuring they undergo periodic health assessments.

The Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme is regulated by the Queensland Government, Resources Safety & Health Queensland. The scheme applies only to Queensland coal mines.

Under the scheme, employers must ensure that health assessments are carried out on each person they employ, or are intending to employ, as a coal mine worker. The scheme does not apply to workers employed for low-risk tasks.

What’s more, Jobfit conducts Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme (Coal Board Medical) assessments all over Australia.

Moreover, employers must adhere to a number of measures around medical assessments for Queensland coal mine workers under laws that took effect on 1 January 2017. Further changes to this process came into effect on 1 March 2019.

For more information, visit the Queensland Government website.
