The construction industry is a rewarding but often dangerous place to work. You get the satisfaction of witnessing new buildings resurrect before your eyes. And to see the happiness on people’s faces when you build their dream homes.
But, due to the hands-on nature of building, you are at risk of many different types of injuries. This can include anything from an injured back, hip, neck or arm, falling objects or a range of health conditions that can develop from working on site.
Have you ever thought about how you would provide for yourself and your family if something affected your ability to work? UPlus is catered specifically to you to ensure you’d be looked after if your ability to work was ever compromised.
