Riskex's Award-winning Covid Management tool Safe2Day protects workforce from Omicron variant
By: Riskex Ltd
During the pandemic, Riskex has been at the forefront of developing innovative tools to help organisations keep their workforce safe. With the emergence of the new Omicron variant threat, it is more important than ever that businesses identify who is vulnerable in their workforce and take preventative steps to support them and help keep the rest of the team safe.
Many organisations adopted a hybrid approach, with a combination of working from home and a phased return to the office. The complexities of understanding peoples' health status in a diverse and widely distributed workforce are a challenge for both HR and health and safety professionals.
The new Omicron variant, and any others that may emerge in future, reinforces the need for knowledge through data collection and management. With calls for a renewed focus on working from home to keep people at a distance, supporting employees and maintaining legislative compliance becomes more complicated to achieve. Using cloud-based management tools throughout the pandemic has helped thousands of managers maintain contact and support.
Riskex's Safe2Day online Covid management tool enables employees to instantly confirm their health status, with data collected into a management dashboard. Initial set up is through a health questionnaire email to staff, continuing with a daily confirmation that their status has not changed. When they do have symptoms, they complete a new questionnaire, alerting management that they are at risk and action is needed. Records are maintained about symptoms and vaccination history, all fully compliant with GDPR and data security protocols.
Minimising the risk of the virus being spread can be achieved by controlling the risk at the source. As the Omicron variant begins to increase its reach, Safe2Day gives employees the confidence that their employer is taking care of their health and wellbeing, as well as giving managers the tool to demonstrate compliance and that all the measures possible have been taken to keep their people safe.
