Pre-shift Health Screenings Via Your Employees Phone

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing how we all work, and safety standards and guidelines are constantly evolving.  The pandemic has put many businesses on alert to ensure they are providing their employees with a safe work environment whilst following public health guidelines to ensure the continued success in limiting the spread of COVID-19 in New Zealand.

It is therefore imperative that employers not knowingly allow workers to come to a workplace when they are sick with COVID-19.  If they do, they are likely to be in breach of their duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act.

A key feature of this successful response has been the quick adoption of digital solutions, the ongoing review and improvement to workplaces processes .  Our team here WFS: A WorkForce Software Company have heard that our customers are struggling to implement necessary health screenings before their employees begin their shifts. In response, our team developed an online, mobile pre-shift health screening questionnaire that automates what many HR and management teams are doing manually. 

How does it work?

Imagine an employee at home sitting on their couch. Four hours before their shift start time, they receive a notification on their personal mobile phone requesting a pre-shift health screen. The survey—based on government guidelines and company policy—asks questions, captures responses, and immediately informs the employee if they are cleared for work or if they need to take steps like self-quarantine.

Watch our VP of Global Product Management, Joe Ross explain how the solution can help protect your business and employees and ensure you maintain a safe work environment.
