HEALTH SCREENING 
 
 
 
 
 
 

HEALTH SCREENING IS AT THE CORE OF WHAT WE DO. 

Since 2004 our nurses have provided health checks for more than 75,000 Irish construction workers at their own workplaces. Our Health Teams have visited 400 workplaces throughout the country. The CWHT uses the most up to date portable diagnostic equipment supplied by our partners Healthcare Screening Ireland. All of our test results are given to the worker on the spot. Every worker also receives a copy of our Good Health Booklet which gives an explanation of all test results.
