The National Industry Scheme for Workplace Health Management aims to improve the health of the construction industry workforce. The scheme focuses on five key areas with the following objectives are:

  • Setting Industry Standards for both work related health issues, and competency of occupational health provision to deliver the health screening, delivering a definition of safety critical workers within the construction sector and outlining fitness for work health checks.
  • Building a construction specific knowledge portal, giving consistent advice, guidance and support in the management of health related risks;
  • Centralising the collection of work related health data to ensure the future improvement of workforce health based on valid and reliable data and the provision of a ‘benchmark’ for industry;
  • The transmission of data to enable employers to manage work related health risks at site level; and
  • A referral route through to specialists in the field of return to work and rehabilitation
