The Section 4 of the Coal Board Medical is the only information from the Coal Board Medical that the employer is privy to.
The medical results and information contained within the Coal Board Medical are submitted to the Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM). The confidentiality of the information contained within the Coal Board Medical is protected by law and the results of a Coal Board Medical can only be released to the worker or a representative, appointed in writing, by the worker.
As part of the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme, employers must ensure that coal board medicals are completed on every new employee and each worker must be retested at least once every five years. If a coal mine worker changes employers, a new coal board medical exam may be required.
