COVID-19 SOCOTEC, a UK specialist provider of testing, inspection and compliance services, has introduced a new environmental swabbing procedure to determine the presence of SARS- CoV-2 on surfaces across a range of workplace environments.

The new method has been adopted in light of preliminary research which indicates that the COVID-19 virus has prolonged tenacity on surfaces, with contact via contaminated surfaces suggested as a possible cause of infection.

This swabbing procedure can be applied across a variety of workplace environments, including offices, factories, communal areas, public areas and public transportation, testing such surfaces as door handles, light switches, HVAC vents, desk tops, office equipment, control panels, seat backs, sinks and toilet cubicles amongst others.

To carry out the test, sterile swabs will be gently rubbed and rolled over a set area of the surface to be sampled. This process is repeated using fresh swabs for all other areas and locations that require sampling. Analysis is carried out by a specialist partner laboratory using Ribonucleic acid (RNA) testing, which detects the presence of SARS- CoV-2 viral RNA fragments.


Results will be reported in a comprehensive format comprising observations, salient points and recommendations for improvement, ensuring full compliance with relevant legislation. Photographic evidence will also be compiled within the report to indicate precisely where samples were taken.

“As certain government restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic begin to ease, many organisations are now facing the overwhelming task of returning their buildings to full occupancy. SOCOTEC is committed to guiding and supporting its clients as they prepare to resume business operations, ensuring that they remain safe and compliant while doing so,” said Norman Sleeth, MD of Environment & Safety at SOCOTEC UK.

He continued: “Our new environmental swabbing method forms just one of SOCOTEC’s wide

range of testing, inspection and compliance services that aims to get buildings ‘business ready’, instilling employers with confidence and reassurance regarding occupational health, safety and hygiene as they continue to operate through these uncertain times.”
