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 6,000+ COVID-19 tests to workers on over 100 sites in just 8 weeks.
Incolink Bus services come at no cost to the worker or their employer.
How is COVID-19 testing delivered?
- Employers or site representatives complete an expression of interest via the Incolink Bus form on this page.
- Test delivery date is organised with the site
- Individuals on site are scheduled for testing and attend their appointment
- Individuals will receive a result within 48 hours.
Any worker showing symptoms of COVID-19 is already encouraged not to attend work. If they arrive at testing with symptoms, they will be immediately seen to determine whether they should be sent home or to a hospital clinic.
Any positive tests will be notified to Government and the individual will be required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days. The impact on other workers from a positive test will be determined by reference to existing industry guidelines which have been approved by the State Government. Any Incolink member who is unable to work due to COVID-19 will be eligible for an Incolink COVID-19 payment from their account.
COVID-19 testing for the construction industry is sponsored by Incolink, the Victorian Government, CBUS, CoINVEST and the ETU.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or via the form on this page.
