Benefits of workplace testing and screening (described video)



The following video uses photographs of people and places to illustrate the narrative.

Someone can have COVID-19 and not know it. That’s why many workplaces are using rapid tests as part of their Workplace Screening, to help keep employees and communities safe.

The opening montage features a variety of people in different work places including a woman in a warehouse wearing safety equipment; a man working in a food store and a woman working in an office setting. All are wearing face masks.

By screening people who are not showing signs of infection, we can identify those who may be carrying COVID-19 into the workplace.

The montage of workplaces continues and then we see a rapid test for COVID-19 followed by photos of men and women being tested.

Rapid screening tests are safe, easy, and give results quickly. It's one more thing we can do to help slow the spread of COVID 19, along with wearing a mask, practising physical distancing, washing our hands frequently and getting vaccinated.

Photos show employees giving the thumbs up sign; followed by more workers in a variety of workplaces keeping their distance; washing their hands and being vaccinated.
