Workplace Health Assessments

For South Australian Mines and Quarry Workers

For over 35 years the Mining and Quarrying Occupational Health and Safety Committee has supported workers and industry with professional high quality, State-wide health surveillance programs.

Initiatives to support workers and promote a safe, responsible, well informed, educated and healthy mining and quarrying workforce have been the MAQOHSC long term goal. The Committee provided free workplace health assessments for many years and has continued targeted efforts to prevent Occupational Dust Related Diseases.
The Committee recognises nationally developing initiatives and programs that are provided for higher disease risk workplaces. Industry engagement needs to ensure all workers across our State including those in regional and remote areas are provided access to targeted specialist industry health services that otherwise may not be available. Please note service conditions and requirements will apply.
