Hearing Amplification Equipment

Do you find it hard to hear in a courtroom or do you use a hearing aid? The Commission uses an infrared assistive hearing system to assist people who are hard of hearing. This is similar to a hearing loop, but ensures the information stays within the conference/court room. This system may be used by parties, witnesses, legal professional, support persons etc.

Should you wish to utilise this system, please complete the Request for hearing amplification form. This form should be forwarded to the Industrial Registry prior to the day of the proceedings.

For any other information please contact the registry on 1300592987 or qirc.registry [at]

Court security

Understanding the nature of threats to the process of justice depends upon information. Identifying those who may have an intention to do harm or disrupt court proceedings and assessing their capability to do so provides the information necessary to measure the risks posed by those circumstances.

Lawyers, government agencies and volunteer and support groups are encouraged to use the court security information report form to advise Queensland Industrial Relations Commission of instances whereby they become aware of a court security concern, risk or threat, and/or whereby additional security measures are being sought for court or commission matters. Details about where to email the completed form are included in the top section of the form.
