Return-to-Work – Measures Upon Reopening
Employers must take special measures when reopening their business to ensure that the Covid-19 Hygiene Policy is accepted. The requirements are strict and are intended to ensure that customers comply with the necessary regulations and that the risk of infection is consequently kept to a minimum.
There are specific requirements for the retail sector, but many of them apply across all industries and have been developed through the cooperation of relevant associations and the statutory accident insurance and occupational health and safety administrations.
Responsibility for the formulated infection control measures lies with the employer and HyServe supports its customers in this with the Lumitester Smart and the associated A3 LuciPac tests for surface control.
HyServe’s Lumitester Smart ATP test can provide information about the true cleanliness of surfaces within 10 seconds. While the test itself does not directly detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus, documented surface cleanliness assures the quality of the cleaning protocol. Furthermore, high-quality cleaning has been shown to reduce viral residues on surfaces and contribute to improved workplace safety.
The Lumitester Smart, along with A3 Test Kits, is capable of detecting ATP, ADP, and AMP. These molecules are universal components of microorganisms and organic residues that may be present on surfaces. Consequently, a daily ATP test with HyServe’s Lumitester Smart from so called high-touch surfaces can provide a reliable assessment of cleaning, without the need for additional laboratory equipment.
