“EVERYBODY KNOWS AN UNCLE WHO HAS WORKED IN THE MINES” CAMPAIGN

R 41 BILLION SET ASIDE

South Africa is traditionally a mining country with platinum, chrome, iron ore, gold, diamond and asbestos mines employing labor from the SADEC. The unfortunate part about mine work is that it exposes one to mineral dust that may cause occupational diseases 20 or more years after exposure.

It then becomes very important for current and ex mine workers to frequently be examined for occupational diseases. Government has made provision for these benefit medical examinations through the Occupational Diseases in Mines and Works Act (ODMWA) administered by the Department of Health through the Medical Bureau of Occupational Diseases (MBOD). Current mine workers are examined at the mine clinics. It has however been challenging for the government to trace ex mine workers and likewise it has been challenging for the ex mine workers to access help.

To this end the MBOD has extended  the provision of the benefit medical examination service to outside the public hospitals. Some private Medical Doctors registered on  the MBOD database are able to offer benefit medical examinations, this in an attempt to make the service more accessible to all ex mine workers regardless of where they are in South Africa.

Who is entitled to a benefit medical examination? THIS EXAMINATION COMES AT NO COST TO THE EX MINE WORKER

  1. Anyone who has worked at a mine in the past
  2. Has not been examined in the past two years
  3. Has not been certified second degree previously
  4. Is in possession of valid work papers (payslip, work card, medical certificate/red ticket, previous certification letter from MBOD,TEBA card/TEBA number)
