New Standards for the delivery of Spirometry for Coal Mine Workers

In July 2017 this  FINAL document was released by the QLD Government and Thoracic Society of Australia & New Zealand.  It outlines the minimum standards required for performing spirometry for the assessment and monitoring of coal mine workers lung function.  The following are now a requirement of CMWHS & you will need to provide evidence of:
  • completion of a full day face to face spirometry training course ( 6 hours + 4 hours online + follow up assessments)
  • completion of ongoing refresher training  (4 hours face to face + 4 hours online)
  • compliance with equipment maintenance requirements (calibration, quality control, log books)

If we can be of any assistance to your company in meeting this compliance, please get in touch.
