Deemed Diseases in Australia

Most jurisdictions in Australia have enacted special provisions in their workers’ compensation legislation which deem specified occupational diseases as being caused by specified work related activities.

This report was commissioned by Safe Work Australia to review the latest scientific evidence on the causal link between diseases and occupational exposures for use by Australian jurisdictions considering a revision to the deemed diseases list in their workers’ compensation legislation.

While the report was developed primarily for use by jurisdictions, Safe Work Australia agreed to publish the report as it provides useful evidence-based information for anyone involved in the prevention or compensation of occupational disease.
