Health monitoring

Roads and Maritime manages risks associated with exposure to physical hazards or hazardous substances

These include:

  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals
  • Exposure to asbestos or asbestos-containing material (ACM) through tasks which have caused inadvertent generation of dust containing asbestos fibres or particulates
  • Exposure to lead
  • Exposure to hazardous noise
  • Vision impairment
  • Exposure to other hazardous substances, as prescribed by relevant legislative requirements.

All activities identified as requiring health monitoring will have a system in place for medical testing, recording results, monitoring and managing any corrective actions for ensuring the health and wellbeing of Roads and Maritime workers and others. Our safety systems – including procedures, tools and guidance – assist in eliminating or minimising risks.
