COVID-19 Screening Solutions

Simple & Powerful Employer Solutions for Managing COVID-19 Risk

HireRight’s U.S.-based COVID-19 screening solutions are designed to provide employers with the tools they need to help mitigate the potential risk of COVID-19 exposure to their employees and customers. We understand that every business is unique with varying operational and risk considerations and a one-size-fits-all approach will not work in today’s diverse working environment. 

Risk Management Options:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Questionnaire 

HireRight can help you quickly and easily track whether your employees have been vaccinated for COVID-19 through our electronic medical questionnaire, which follows the guidelines established by the CDC. The information collected includes the type of vaccination given (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, etc.) and the associated dosage dates for the first, second and third (booster) shots if applicable. Employees are then required to upload their COVID documentation.

  • COVID-19 Viral Marker Tests

HireRight offers simple, self-administered viral marker* tests that can be performed in the safety and security of an employee's home, no need to schedule a clinic or telemedicine visit. The test detects the presence of coronavirus in a saliva sample that is easy to collect and is not "technique dependent". 

  1. Ad Hoc Testing is “as-needed” testing for employees displaying symptoms or who have been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with the virus.

  2. Assurance Testing is ongoing testing conducted for the entire workforce at periodic intervals. This type of testing helps identify cases of COVID-19 early, especially among employees who are either pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic without outward signs of infections.

  • COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool Provided by Preworkscreen

A simple and efficient way to conduct pre-shift employee COVID-19 symptom questionnaires. Employees can download the Preworkscreen app for iPhone or Android and complete the self-assessment on-the-go. 

Questions are based on current Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state specific guidelines where employees are located.

Assessment results are compiled in real-time and immediately available to employers through their Preworkscreen dashboards where they can quickly track and monitor the overall health-statuses of their workforce.

COVID-19 Screening Solutions Benefits

As the country returns to work, employers need to consider how best to decrease the possible spread of COVID-19 in their business and lower the potential impact to their workers and customers. Until a vaccine is readily available on a nationwide basis, risk mitigation tools such as screenings and self-assessments are a good first line of defense.

  • Self-administered tests performed from the comfort of the employee’s home
  • Testing and screening to help minimize the risk of contagion spread
  • May mitigate the reputational risk of mass absenteeism and pandemic-related disruptions
  • Scalable and affordable solutions for all sizes of organizations
  • Provides actionable data to help employers make informed decisions
