Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme Medical

We can help you have a Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme Medical in Brisbane.


A Coal Mine Workers’ Health Assessment (formally known as a Coal Board Medical) is a medical examination required for all Queensland coal mine workers.

Our Examining Medical Officer (EMO) is registered with the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRME).


The medical includes paperwork and a ‘physical’:

– Review of Section 1 (completed by your employer prior to your appointment)

– Review of Section 2 (completed by yourself prior to your appointment)

– Completion of Section 3

– Physical examination – cardiovascular, respiratory, abdominal, musculoskeletal function, skin review, and measurements of height, weight, vision, and urine composition

– Audiometry (hearing test)

– ILO Chest X-Ray referral to a Lungscreen registered provider as per DNRME standards

– Chest X-Ray dual read by Lungscreen Australia

– Spirometry referral to a registered spirometry practice.

The spirometry test results, CXR report, ILO classification and Sections 1, 2 and 3 are then forwarded to an Appointed Medical Advisor (AMA). The AMA has been chosen by your employer for the completion of Section 4, the fitness summary of the health assessment report.

Our clinic is conveniently located in the CBD near central train station. 

Bring the following to your Coal Mine Workers’ Health Assessment appointment:

– Photographic ID

– Completed paperwork for Section 1 and 2
