All health assessments of rail safety workers in Australia are conducted in line with the current edition of the National Standard for Health Assessment of Rail Safety Workers (the Standard).
Rail operators accredit doctors and other health professionals to perform the assessments. Accredited health professionals then carry out the assessments using the Standard.
Read this page carefully to understand a change to the Standard about requirements for assessing diabetic status and cardiac risk.
October 2022 update: A revised draft Standard is now open for consultation here.
