Workers' Compensation Dust Diseases Board

This website has been developed to help you and your family better understand the role of the Dust Diseases Board and the compensation process.  This website explains the steps you will need to take to find out whether you have contracted a dust disease as a result of your employment as a deemed worker in New South Wales and whether you are entitled to compensation.  After reading through this site, you may still have some questions about the compensation process.  The staff at the Dust Diseases Board will be happy to answer these questions or to provide you with further information.

The Board can be contacted between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday, on (02) 8223 6600 of 1800 550 027 (toll free).
