With the growing spread of COVID-19 cases in the U.S, every workplace has to adapt to keep workers healthy and safe.
For many businesses, this means temporarily shutting the doors or having employees work from home. For companies that continue with on-site work, proactive measures need to be taken to reduce the spread of the virus.
Implementing COVID-19 symptom screening is an effective way to stay one step ahead.
At Worksite Medical, our symptom screening includes specific testing that includes risk-factor questions and temperature screening conducted by our highly trained medical staff. We use mobile medical units to come directly to your place, so you don’t have to send employees to local clinics or hospitals where people may have the virus.
With symptom screening, you can quickly identify workers who may be infected or carrying the virus.
In China, where no new virus cases have been reported, proactive measures were taken to measure temperatures and send home people who may not have even been aware of their symptoms. Worksite Medical’s screening process was created with other successful containment efforts in mind.
Symptom Screening Includes Respirator Fit Testing
We also conduct OSHA-required respirator fit testing for worksites issuing N-95 respirators as a means to protect workers. If your worksite is new to respirator use, fit testing is important to ensure that facepieces fit tightly and work properly. There are two types of tests:
1) Qualitative Fit Test – a non-numeric pass/fail test that relies on the employee’s sense of taste or smell, or his/her reaction to a substance (test agent) in order to detect leakage into the respirator facepiece.
2) Quantitative Fit Test – utilizes a machine to measure the amount of leakage into the facepiece, instead of relying on senses.
