Dust monitoring requirements for Queensland coal mines

The Queensland Government has reviewed and amended the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2001 to increase dust monitoring in Queensland coal mines.

As a result, new recognised standards and guidelines have been released with the aim of driving best-practice monitoring and control of respirable dust in coal mines.

Dust monitoring and on-site control solutions

Simtars' professional team of occupational hygienists will work with you to design practical solutions to help keep your workplace safe and comply with Queensland mining legislation.

We won’t sell you a dust management solution that won’t exactly meet your needs. We will assess and address your objectives and recommend an alternative solution or options, if ours isn’t a fit.

With our extensive industry experience, and an all-inclusive and fully integrated monitoring and testing solutions, we will work with you to:

  • analyse dust hazards
  • monitor workers' exposure to dust
  • establish similar exposure groups (SEGs) for your site
  • develop proactive dust monitoring and management plans
  • estimate potential exposure risk to workers using descriptive statistical techniques
  • control dust hazards
  • meet the competency requirements in the recognised standard for workers conducting respirable dust sampling.
