Coal Mine Safety and Health Safety Regulation Health Assessment (formerly Coal Board Medical)

The Coal Mine Safety and Health Safety Regulation Health Assessment (CMSHR), formerly Coal Board Medical, protects the health of Queensland coal mine workers by ensuring they undergo compulsory pre-employment and periodic health assessments.

Under the CMSHR, operators of Queensland coal mines must ensure that health assessments are carried out on each person they employ, or intend to employ, as a coal mine worker.

Coal mine workers who are permanently retiring from the coal mining industry are also able to request a retirement examination as part of the CMSHR.

Your employer may also require you to undertake a Drug and Alcohol Screen, please note that Drug and Alcohol Screening is not included in the price of the CMSHR Health Assessment.

Commercial Driver’s Licence Medical (Dangerous Goods Medical)

Driving a motor vehicle is a complex task requiring perception, good judgement, responsiveness and reasonable physical capability. Professional driving adds additional demands associated with the vehicle itself, the responsibility to passengers, distances travelled, the demands of work schedules and so on.

A range of medical conditions as well as treatments may therefore impair the ability to undertake work safely. Drivers must meet certain medical standards to ensure their health status does not increase the risk of a crash in which they or other road users may be injured or killed.

The commercial standards should be applied to:
  • Drivers of 'heavy vehicles' i.e. those holding or applying for a licence of class MR (Medium Rigid), HR (Heavy Rigid), HC (Heavy Combination) or MC (Multi-combination).
  • Drivers applying for an authority /already authorised to carry public passengers for hire or reward (bus drivers, taxi drivers, chauffeurs, drivers of hire cars and small buses etc).
  • Drivers applying for an authority / already authorised to carry bulk dangerous goods.

Commercial vehicle drivers are required to comply with legislation, and be certified as ‘fit to drive’, in accordance with the Assessing Fitness to Drive 2012 standards for commercial vehicle drivers, published by Austroads and the National Transport Commission.

Please call 07 4933 3334 to enquire and book.
