Abstract:
This guideline will assist in meeting the requirements in the Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994 (the Act) and the Mines Safety and Inspection Regulations 1995 (the regulations) relating to biological monitoring and the additional health surveillance required when employees are exposed to hazardous substances other than silica and dust.

It focuses on how to measure employees’ real exposures to chemicals using biological monitoring to assess whether the exposures have negatively impacted their health, and the implementation of risk-based health surveillance to address any issues that may arise following exposure to a specific chemical. Particular attention is paid to toxic metals being mined or present as significant ore contaminants in Western Australia, or used at mining operations.
