Occupational Health companies are uniquely placed to offer reassurance to employees as to their health and wellbeing against the backdrop of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Where correct PPE and regular handwashing can provide limited reassurance, regular testing of the entire workforce is the most effective way to ensure a workplace stays virus free. A well planned programme needs to be incorporated seamlessly into the weekly schedule and provide that reassurance to staff that they are safe to be in work and not silent carriers or transmitters of Covid-19.
However, an Occupational health specialist doesn't apply just to the testing phase. Their role will cover all phases of a Covid-19 workplace programme, including logistical and safety structures that are in line with government guidelines.
Before designing project plans, risk assessments will first be carried out by occupational health specialists in assistance with business teams and Covid Testing Network to decipher key logistics of a plan, such as which employees will need testing and the volume of testing per day/week. Consent is required from all employees that will be tested, the set-up of this phase and continual staff support can be assisted by an Occupational Health specialist.
