Incolink Bus - COVID-19 Testing

Delivering COVID-19 Testing, Flu Vaccinations and Health Checks on site.

Visiting the doctor for a check-up is something many of us put off.

The Incolink Bus delivers Health Checks to sites around Victoria and Tasmania and in April 2020 was our spring board to delivering COVID-19 Testing to the construction industry. We've delivered 17,000 COVID-19 tests to workers on over 233 sites.

Proactive, asymptomatic testing has made an important contribution towards keeping our industry safe. The extensive reach of this program was made possible by the funding and support of the Victorian Government and the sponsorship of Cbus, CoINVEST and the ETU along with our industry union and employer associations. The program is also delivered with our program partners Australian Prostate Centre.

The focus of asymptomatic testing on construction sites has moved to major transport infrastructure, aligning with Stage 4 restrictions, and we are working with the MTIA and other delivery agencies.

Incolink may still have some capacity to provide rapid response testing for major outbreaks on commercial construction sites. Contact our team on 03 9668 3067 or email onsitetesting@incolink.org.au for more information on rapid response testing.

Incolink now provides voluntary flu vaccinations to construction workers on site.

The onsite flu vaccination clinics can be provided as a standalone flu vaccination clinic or alternatively delivered at the same time as an onsite COVID-19 testing clinic.

Delivered in partnership with Australian Prostate Centre, the program follows all Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 guidelines. The limited number of vaccines will be offered to employer members through expressions of interest.

Employers can register by emailing your site location details and contact number to onsitetesting@incolink.org.au or via the form on this page.

55 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every day - over 20,000 each year.
