Don’t risk it – test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and keep your employees and customers safe.
Surface and wastewater testing is essential to stopping the spread of COVID-19 as we reoccupy offices, workplaces, schools, buildings and shared spaces. If your business or workplace is looking to return to work while ensuring employee safety and health, please reach out to us to see how we can help make that happen.
Reasons to Test
Identify High Risk Surfaces
Studies have shown that the COVID-19 virus can live for a period of time in wastewater and remain active on surfaces outside the human body such as plastic, stainless steel, and wood surfaces. HPE’s surface and wastewater testing can improve your cleaning protocols, identify high-risk areas, and pinpoint where additional cleaning is needed.
Ensure Worker Health & Safety
Testing for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA on environmental surfaces is the most direct and definitive test for ensuring effective disinfection procedures and maintaining worker safety. Utilize our range of COVID-19 consulting and testing services to demonstrate that every step is being taken to prioritize employee safety.
Implement Risk Management Plans
Risk management plans are vital for worker safety and peace of mind, especially when it comes to COVID-19. This makes thorough sampling a staple for any sound risk management or response plan. Whether utilizing proactive testing or validating the efficacy of cleaning methods, environmental testing is essential to all re-occupancy and safety protocols.
Monitor for Early Detection
Every day we are learning more about how the SARS-CoV-2 virus travels and who is susceptible. Environmental surface and wastewater testing geared toward early detection can help assist not only in identification, but also in contact tracing and prevention, even before the virus becomes observable or employees become symptomatic.
Validate Effective Cleaning Methods
Increased cleaning methods and strategies are vital but need to be backed up by appropriate surface testing. HPE’s surface and air testing for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA on is the most direct and definitive test for ensuring effective disinfection procedures and providing the highest level of confidence for businesses and workplaces looking to return to work.
Respond to a Known Case of COVID-19
Testing the workplace and surfaces frequented by a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 will ensure that disinfection and cleaning procedures have been effective and the area is ready to be re-occupied. While the COVID-19 virus can be easily killed, testing for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces and in wastewater can provide the greatest peace of mind.
