Return To Work
There are so many things to consider as you plan your company’s return to work strategy. ARCpoint Labs can help you develop a plan that is specific to your workplace, that adheres to important safety measures set forth by federal, state and local government agencies and aims to reduce the risk of exposure for your employees.
Our Return to Work Guide for Employers is your single source for important information regarding bringing your staff back to work safely. We’ve enlisted the help of Compliance & Employment Law attorney Bill Judge to streamline important guidelines and testing protocols from several government agencies, including:
→ ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act]
→ OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration]
→ CDC [Centers for Disease Control]
→ EEOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission]
Our program provides a set of valuable resources to help you come up with the best approach for your company.
ARCpoint Labs can help you develop your customized return to work protocol that includes these key advantages:
Temperature Checks Alone Are Not Enough
The CDC now estimates that roughly 40% of COVID-19 transmissions are happening before people feel sick or show any symptoms, and 35% of those who have the virus never show symptoms at all.† That means temperature checks alone are not enough to prevent the spread and protect your employees, and it emphasizes the importance of having a comprehensive testing strategy.
Whether it’s on-boarding new employees, determining what to do with contractors, or finding ways to bring previously sick employees back to work, we have the guidance you need to ensure compliance with government regulations while decreasing your risk.
Why is the viral test an important piece of your return to work strategy and keeping your employees and customers safe?
For your employees that have experienced symptoms or been in close contact with others who were infected with the virus, by identifying the presence of the live virus in a donor, the viral test determines whether any of your employees currently have the virus and could possibly infect others. The viral test helps you make staffing decisions to avoid the spread of the virus in your workplace after an employee tests positive or when determining who should return to work and when by allowing you to identify infected employees.
National trauma events have been known to potentially increase substance abuse, mental health issues and possible relapse for those in recovery. This is especially concerning with a stay at home order in place. At ARCpoint Labs, we want to help get your employees back to work safely with services such as:
→ Increased drug testing
→ Adjusted drug and alcohol testing policy
→ Importance of supervisor signs and symptoms training
→ Background screening
Please note that our tests have not been FDA cleared or approved, but they have been authorized by FDA under Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA’s) for use by authorized laboratories. Depending on the specific test type, these tests are authorized for the detection of SARS CoV-2, its proteins and/or its antibodies. These tests are only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.
