Skin cancer affects two in three Australians by the time they are 70. Those who work outdoors, such as building and construction workers, are especially at risk. That's why we created the Skin Checks program.
Incolink has partnered with Australian's largest mobile skin cancer clinic SkinPatrol to roll out a comprehensive skin checks program for our members.
A team of GP’s with expertise in skin cancer diagnosis and treatment provide the skin checks. Any suspicious lesions are mapped and imaged, and follow up with a dermatologist is included if required. The program focuses on preventative education to help workers keep themselves safe, as well as reinforcing the importance of early detection of melanoma.
Incolink employer members can take advantage of this potentially life saving program for their workers by filling in the form below.

The Incolink Skin Checks program is rolled out in two steps on site and has been streamlined to minimise disruption to site operations. Here's how it works:
Step 1 — Toolbox Session
We deliver a short toolbox session to your workforce on why it's important for everyone to have a skin check. We also run through the services and benefits available to workers through their Incolink membership and answer any questions they may have.
Step 2 — Individual Skin Checks
Workers who have nominated for the program are given a full body skin check by our team of specialist skin cancer doctors. Each skin check takes 15 minutes and is completely confidential. Any suspicious lesions are mapped and imaged so they can be monitored in the future, and further treatment is provided if necessary. Each worker receives their results on the day, including education on how to manage any skin issues they may have.
