The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase in staff shortages through absenteeism. Some of the reasons for staff absence include:
Antigen COVID tests can be procured for as little as $8/person, this can prevent the spread of infection within the workplace. As such, multiplying absenteeism that will negatively affect the business.
By testing daily, you can ensure that all employees are not going to contract COVID-19 within the workplace and prevent out of control absenteeism.
COVID-19 workplace testing is not only beneficial for the individual being screened but for others, such as colleagues and/or the wider community. Testing is a control measure for reducing the likelihood of transmission.
Businesses have an increasing role to play in breaking chains of transmission by testing their workforce on a daily basis.
There are two types of tests – the Antigen test and a PCR test, which requires laboratory analysis.
The Antigen test and PCR tests determine whether a person has an active COVID-19 infection and should self-isolate.
The Antigen test is an instant, self-administered test, which provides an employer with the COVID-19 status of an employee, in under 15 minutes using a swab test.
Similarly, the PCR test determines a personʼs current COVID-19 status and involves a laboratory process which takes place in a COVID-19 testing facility. The sample collection can be collected by the employee themselves, with results available 6-24 hours once the samples reach the lab.
The pandemic has affected everyone differently and employers need to consider that they cannot afford to have employees on site that arenʼt fit for work.
