Not-for-profit firm B&CE is to buy occupational health body Constructing Better Health.
B&CE, which offers pensions, healthcare and insurances to its members, will acquire Constructing Better Health from the Construction Skills Certification Scheme over the next few months.
It comes amid moves to boost occupational health in the industry.
Patrick Heath-Lay, chief executive of B&CE, said: “We want to build on the work that Constructing Better Health has done over the past few years and, following a period of intensive engagement with the sector, launch a new proposition that really delivers for construction workers and employers.
“B&CE is proud of the work that it has done in providing simple financial and welfare benefits to the construction sector over the years. We will bring our knowledge and experience to deliver a valued occupational health scheme.
“We provided financial support to the Constructing Better Health pilot scheme and have supported the work of Constructing Better Health from Day One. We know that we can deliver a new scheme that will benefit construction even more than the existing scheme does.”
