Coronavirus Lateral Flow Test

In order to control the spread of coronavirus, the contractor are testing employees using Antigen lateral flow tests.

These tests are done in the evening, when employees are at home. In case of a positive test, employees will immediately self isolate and book an NHS coronavirus test and follow UK Government Guidance.

To encourage all site workers to take free coronavirus lateral flow tests they are providing operatives and subcontractors during DABS meeting the addresses and website links of places in the area that are providing these tests.

Operatives are also reminded to not book a lateral flow test if they have any coronavirus symptoms.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
