The National Transport Commission is seeking feedback on the discussion paper: Should Australia expand rail health assessments?
During the last review of the National Standard for Health Assessment of Rail Safety Workers, significant changes to two specific areas of Rail Safety Worker health assessment were proposed:
- Sleep disorders: a proposal to expand obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) testing to more rail safety workers.
- Category 3 medical assessments: a proposal to expand the health assessment criteria for Category 3 around the track personnel (ATTP).
This discussion paper outlines the current requirements and potential options to change the Standard, and seeks supporting evidence from stakeholders to help develop a case for making a change or otherwise. The NTC has undertaken a literature review on the two issues under consideration. The literature review has not provided sufficient information to the NTC to develop a robust case for change.
