Coal Services developed Order 41 under the authority granted it by the New South Wales Coal Industry Act (2001). The Order, given the effect of Law by the NSW Government on the 11th February 2011, requires that employers of a coal mine worker or operators of a coal operation in NSW ensure that preplacement medical assessments and periodic health assessments are completed for their workforce.
Coal Services has designed a generic template to assist providers to comply with the requirements of the Order 41 preplacement medical assessment and periodic health assessment.
The following forms are available for providers to complete electronically:
Please note the following forms have been updated – effective 1 March 2017.
Please note that all testing must be completed and the paperwork submitted to Coal Services via the requesting employer within four weeks of the medical being finalised. For further information about Order 41 preplacement medical assessments and periodic health assessment please click here.
Has your new employee already undergone an Order 41 preplacement medical with another employer?
NSW Coal Order 41 allows employers to utilise an existing preplacement medical assessment for a new employee for the purpose of Order 41 compliance, provided the preplacement medical assessment* was undertaken within the 12 months prior to the commencement date with the new employer.
If you are an employer wishing to utilise an existing preplacement medical assessment for a new employee, please complete the form below and submit to CS Health.
Upon receipt of the completed form, CS Health will review the details of the nominated medical assessment to ensure compliance with Order 41, and will update the employment details of the worker.
If the previous preplacement medical assessment is not compliant, or was undertaken more than 12 months prior to the commencement date with the new employer, the new employer will be advised to arrange a new preplacement medical assessment.
* The existing assessment must be Order 41 compliant and registered on CS Health’s database to be utilised by another company.
