Benefits of workplace testing and screening

With 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 more and more workplaces are using rapid tests as part of 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 in an office setting. All are wearing face masks.

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

The montage of workplaces continues and then we see a rapid test for COVID-19 which shows a person in a lab coat, wearing medical gloves and holding a cotton swab and a vial; 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 protect ourselves from 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.
