If your firm is interested in getting government support to provide free workplace testing kits, you must register your interest by Wednesday 31 March.

The testing kits are made up of rapid lateral flow tests to test your employees twice a week in the workplace.

The service is currently only available to organisations in England.

Though not mandatory, the government has said that workplace testing is likely to form a crucial part of the strategy to avoid another lockdown.

The government hopes that widespread workplace testing will help:

  • protect workers
  • stifle COVID-19 transmission
  • build staff and customer confidence that the economy is reopening safely

An online portal provides information to help organisations plan and deliver their testing programme, along with promotional materials.
