The Mobile Clinic is an initiative of the KwaZulu-Natal Master Builders Association. The Association has a very active Safety Department, but Health has, on the whole, taken a back seat.
It has become clear over the last few years, that there was a clear need amongst our Members for a variety of Health related services. These include:
On-site Medical surveillance
Health Risk Assessments and Consulting
HIV voluntary counselling and testing
Health education & training
First Aid Training courses
A decision was therefore taken to purchase a Mobile Clinic and employ the services of a full-time Occupational Health Nurse Practitioner. Given the nature of the construction (and related) industries, it was imperative to bring the clinic to the workplace in order to facilitate the service and keep down-time to an absolute minimum.
The Association is committed to providing a professional service, which can be tailored to the specific requirements of clients and can be offered at competitive rates. Members of Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal are entitled to a generous discount on all services offered by the Mobile Clinic.
The Mobile Clinic is fitted out with the latest equipment and we are currently able to service most areas in KwaZulu-Natal, as well as areas bordering the province. We have already done work as far away as Butterworth.
We have a service level agreement with two Doctors who have specialized in the field of Occupational Health. They are sent the results of all screening tests and then issue a Certificate of Fitness for each employee tested, stating that the employee is fit for the position, or outlining any restrictions.
