Specialist warewashing servicing company, Crystaltech, is implementing a monthly testing scheme for its nationwide engineer workforce.
All 60 Crystaltech engineers will be required to undertake a virus test every 28 days and will then be issued with a Covid-19 photo ID badge to show sensitive healthcare sites when they had the test and when the next one is due for renewal. This new assurance comes into place as the company has been asked to provide support to one of the largest care home providers in the UK.
MD Derek Maher commented: “Over the last few months our engineers have been working within strict safety guidelines when they have attended particularly sensitive sites including nursing homes, hospitals, public sector sites, supermarkets, MOD and production kitchens.
“Our monthly testing scheme will provide those sites with added assurances that all our engineers are working to the highest safety standards to prioritise the health and safety of those that they come into contact with.”
