Health Cover for construction workers and businesses in the UK – this is why you need it.

For any professionals working in a job where there is a certain amount of risk to their safety involved, private healthcare is always a good idea. This includes self-employed business owners who work in the construction industry, as well as those who own construction companies and want to provide their employees with quality health care.

Using powerful tools and working on building sites and around many large moving objects can create the opportunity for all sorts of accidents. By ensuring that you or your employees are covered with a comprehensive private health plan for construction workers, you can rest at ease that recovery for you and your team from injuries can be dealt with in a timely and professional manner. For example, speedy access to private consultants and tests and physiotherapy.

How much does private healthcare for construction workers cost?

We understand that funding for construction companies can vary throughout the year, as it is often an industry fuelled by seasonality. As such, it’s natural for both employees and construction firm owners to be concerned about the cost of private healthcare. However, Equipsme have made it their mission to minimise this concern with their affordable health insurance plans for businesses of all sizes.

Our options include health insurance plans for construction business owners with employees, starting from just £7 per person per month. Plus options at £17pppm, £29pppm and £37pppm, with £29pppm proving to be our most popular plan.

Our health insurance plans for self-employed construction workers start at just £27 per month or £39 per month. Find the plan that best suits you.

Best Health Benefits for Construction Workers

The best health cover for self-employed construction workers or construction businesses should be comprehensive, flexible and affordable, offering different package options so that everyone can find something to suit their needs.
