During the pandemic, everyone has had to adjust their lives to a new normal. Activities that used to be strictly face-to-face are now virtual, including work. Indeed, it would be ideal to continue working remotely for the foreseeable future until the danger passes, but what about a business that can't operate virtually?
When you don't have the option of going completely virtual, are there things you can do to minimize the risk of an outbreak? The answer is yes!
That's the whole idea behind the smartphone app WorkSafe: to give employers and their employees access to a safe and effective platform to manage COVID-19 policy transparently.
When you start using WorkSafe, you have a user-friendly, mobile-ready application at your fingertips that's more powerful than you might initially assume. The app essentially gives you an easy way to implement your company's COVID-19 policies and update on COVID-19 test results as needed.
It's a simple & powerful app for remote and on-site COVID-19 control that anyone can use, even if you're not a computer-savvy person.
Take a moment to think about how you would currently contact your co-workers about potential exposure to COVID-19. It's probably a rudimentary, manual process.
You'd likely start by emailing or calling your supervisor to let your employer know the risk. Then, your supervisor might blast out emails or call everyone one-by-one, trying to figure out who needs to stay home and who's safe to work.
The problem is that you don't have the time or resources to manage COVID-19 without a tool to bring it all together in one platform. That's where WorkSafe comes into play.
Employers use the app by customizing survey questions that employees have to answer via the WorkSafe mobile app on iOS or Android. Once workers finish the survey, the app will immediately let them know if they're OK to work or need to stay home to protect others.
