Webinar series to support high-quality spirometry

Resources Safety and Health Queensland (RSHQ) conducts ongoing regulatory activity to ensure spirometry under the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme (the Scheme) is performed to a high standard. These important tests aid in the early detection of occupational respiratory diseases like coal workers’ pneumoconiosis and silicosis.

RSHQ has found some areas where spirometry can be improved and recently held a three-part webinar series on the mandatory requirements of the 2022 TSANZ Standards for the delivery of spirometry for resource workers. Three case study recordings on spirometry interpretation were also included.

These resources are provided to assist RSHQ approved spirometry practices deliver high quality spirometry in accordance with their obligations under the Scheme.

All recordings are now available to view via the links below.
