A combination of these services will enable you to have robust plans in place to detect COVID-19 earlier in your workplace, which can help you reduce contamination risk of other staff members and customers and, as a result, reinforce the safety of your staff at work and customers, in a cost effective and realistic (in terms of "ability to implement") way.
Each situation requires slightly different approaches and that’s why we also offer these services individually to ensure Eurofins is providing you with the exact testing services, and associated solutions customized to your needs, to help you be Safer@Work.
