Health Checks IN 3 EASY STEPS
Posted on May 01, 2019
Incolink has been looking after our members’ wellbeing for nearly 30 years. Today, the need to focus our efforts and provide constructive practical health and wellbeing support for construction workers is as strong as ever.
Incolink Health Checks is a threestage program which enables workers to find out early if they are at risk of any chronic disease like high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Incolink manages the whole process and the Health Checks are held on site. The free 15-minute Health Checks are supported by all key stakeholders in the construction industry.
STAGE 1 - Incolink - Your Questions Answered
- Benefits of being an Incolink member.
- Choice of redundancy accounts.

Incolink Health Checks help workers understand their risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. All Health Checks are conducted by trained health professionals and are completely confidential.
