Health monitoring tool from Riskex helps Sysmex workers on the front-line in COVID-19 crisis
By: Riskex Ltd
Using Riskex's free AssessNET Health Assessment Module, Sysmex managers have found it easier to monitor their employees. The short health survey includes questions to find out who has symptoms, been tested positive, is home alone or living with others, has underlying health issues, and who is fit to work. Results and concerns are flagged up to a real-time dashboard.
As so many employers know, as the UK starts to emerge from lockdown, the Health and Safety team work closely with HR to maintain compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Tracey Pounds, Quality Specialist at Sysmex said, "The notification from the HSE about COVID-19 qualifying for RIDDOR means that HR and Health and Safety need to monitor this together. This module means we can do this really easily."
Tracey continued, "Information has been flowing, as employees have been happy to complete the questionnaire, and it's brilliant, so quick, 30 seconds, 10 snap questions. People are willing to repeat it if they need to, as it's so easy."
Sysmex deliver analysers directly into hospitals, so using the tool means they can know that their people entering the premises are safe to do so. Tracey said, "It's in our employees' minds that they need to do the questionnaire, which will help us coming out of lockdown."
She is also impressed with the dashboard, saying, "It's really good, all the information is in one place at a glance."
Riskex have made the tool free to every UK organisation - including businesses, public sector and charities. To sign up and help your employees safely return to the workplace, visit:
