face worker working on a non-mechanised coal face; or
development worker; or
face-salvage worker; or
conveyor belt cleaner; or

If a person satisfies the occupational criteria the case is referred to medical services for advice on the level of disablement. For IIDB purposes, disablement is assessed by making a comparison with a person of the same age and sex whose physical and mental condition is normal. In each case, advice on the assessment of disablement and the likely duration is given by a doctor specially trained in industrial injuries disablement matters.
John Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions by what means the proportion of disablement is determined for former miners making a claim for industrial injuries disablement benefit in respect of osteoarthritis of the knee.

The customer will normally be asked to attend a medical examination carried out by a trained health care professional appointed by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, who will provide the decision-maker with advice on the level of disablement in each case, taking account of all the evidence available and comparing the customers condition as a result of the effects of the prescribed disease or accident with that of a normal healthy person of the same age and sex.
