In recent months, thousands of businesses have started engaging in regular workplace COVID testing to allow them to maintain business continuity while at the same time ensuring that their teams stay safe and protected. That’s why Medigold Health have introduced the service; COVID-19 training for testers.
By detecting and quickly isolating employees who test positive for the virus, organisations can more readily prevent widespread outbreaks among their workforce, but with the accuracy of tests varying significantly depending on who is carrying them out, how can you be sure that your testing programme is effective?
Research shows that when conducted by a professionally-trained competent person as opposed to self-trained individuals, the accuracy of COVID testing is approximately 30% higher and there is a significantly reduced risk of false positive and negative results being returned.
Our Train the Tester service will help you to ensure that your in-house COVID Testers are fully proficient in all the latest testing procedures, giving you peace of mind that they are performing the sampling process effectively and safely and that you’re getting the most from your testing programme.
