Employment Screening Services (ESS), the customized background screening and drug testing solution, announced to provide rapid response COVID-19 test kits that streamline the process for employers, struggling to manage COVID-related risk in the workplace. Most employees can self-administrate the COVID tests without the need for medical personnel, proclaimed to be more precise than the standard anterior nasal swab tests. These COVID test kits allow employers to make quick decisions with a higher level of certainty as lab-based results are usually available within 48 hours. ESS has ranked nationally in the background screening and drug testing industry and has incorporated COVID-19 testing with the same process companies use for new employees’ screening.
The founder and CEO at ESS, Sheila Benson, has stated that their goal is to find a practical way to help clients manage their risk if an employee gets sick or is exposed to the virus. According to her, this is very attractive for employees to have the ability to safely collect their own test samples without any assistance from a health care professional.
The COVID tests provided by ESS have four types, including the self-collected salvia tests provided by Clinical Reference Laboratory (CRL). ESS orders, processes, and reports the COVID tests through its secure cloud-based platform, besides employers use the same system daily for their background screening needs.
Benson further adds that formerly they thought only highly vulnerable businesses would use the test to discover if potentially infected employees can remain or return to the workplace. But they are observing a wide range of clients using the test in multiple scenarios. She thinks that it’s all about finding the right solution for each client, as an example, two different energy organizations located in the southeast and Midwest are using ESS to test more than 3,000 employees and contractors in their nuclear plants.
