Asbestos Compensation Commissioner Annual Reports

The asbestos compensation scheme aims to ensure that Tasmanian workers with an asbestos-related disease, reasonably attributable to exposure at work, and their families can access statutory compensation to assist them in a difficult period of their lives.

The scheme’s objectives are to:

  • provide fair and appropriate compensation and pay certain expenses to workers with asbestos-related diseases, and family members of deceased workers
  • ensure applications are resolved promptly and effectively
  • provide an effective and economical mechanism for resolving disputes
  • provide a mechanism in which medical determinations are made accurately, and are based on evidence.
