Construction

We have extensive experience of working with customers within the construction industry including road, rail and utilities.

There are a number of health surveillance requirements for exposed workers within construction that include lung function tests, hearing tests, hand arm vibration (HAVS), asbestos medicals and chest x-rays.  If you are in any doubt or need assistance to determine your exact requirements please contact us.

In addition, confirming fitness to work is demanded by many construction industry clients for their employees and any contractor working on their sites. Our Safety Critical Medicals are completed in line with industry best practice.   They can include drug and alcohol testing if required.

Certificates are usually issued on the day of the medical.

We are flexible in terms of service delivery, and medicals can be completed at our clinics, or on site – with or without our mobile screening unit.

We also offer

  • ongoing support through our screening and absence management services should any health issues be identified
  • training for H&S and/or managers on the health screening requirements within the construction industry
  • proactive health and wellbeing initiatives including Toolbox Talks on a wide range of subjects
  • counselling – including post incident support
