On 1 September 2015, the Dust Diseases Board became the Dust Diseases Authority (DDA) and is now part of a new organisation Insurance and Care NSW (icare). The information on this website is still relevant and a new website will be available in the coming months.

Workers Compensation Dust Diseases Board

We provide financial compensation and support to people who have had work-related exposure to harmful dust in NSW.

Along with compensation, we also fund on-going assistance to improve quality-of-life. This can include mobility aids, personal care, and medication and treatment from health professionals, as well as general assistance such as domestic support and respite care for families.
