The review of the Dust Diseases scheme was referred for the purposes of section 27 of the State Insurance and Care Governance Act 2015, where the Law and Justice Committee was designated to supervise the operation of the insurance and compensation schemes established under New South Wales workers’ compensation and motor accidents legislation (Minutes No 2, 8 May 2019).
This year's review will provide the opportunity to evaluate the progress of the recommendations made in the 2019 review on the management of silicosis in the manufactured stone industry.
Please note that the Committee's role is to review the operation of the Workers' Compensation (Dust Diseases) Scheme. It will not be investigating or reviewing any individual claims.
