Dust Diseases Tribunal

Dust Diseases Board

The Workers Compensatio​n Dust Diseases Board of NSW is different from the Dust Diseases Tribunal of NSW.

The Board can examine, hear and determine claims for compensation (not damages) by New South Wales workers. Claimants cannot be legally represented.

  • Where certain conditions exist, the Board may consider: 
  • Medical examination of NSW workers exposed to dust in the workplace
  • Paying compensation benefits to eligible NSW workers and dependants 
  • Co-ordinating and paying medical and related health care expenses.

The Board administers the Workers Compensation (Dust Diseases) Board Fund and the Workers Compensation (Dust Diseases) Act 1942. For further information please visit the Dust Diseases Board website.
