Navigating life and work in 2020 can seem more like trying to navigate through a mine field with a blindfold. Some employees have completely transitioned into work-from-home roles permanently, while others are patiently awaiting the green light to return to the office. In these unprecedented times, workplaces are often left to fend for themselves to figure out the best and safest practices for employees to return to work and to stay safe while doing so.
Entrepreneurs Amar Goel and Anand Das quickly realized this problem and went to work to find a solution. The result: Safeter. Safeter is a solution that assists companies with navigating the waters on how to return to work safely and function efficiently during this time of crisis. In an interview, Dr. Fauci discusses how simply taking a person’s temperature and moving on is no longer reliable.
This new solution includes assistance with employee scheduling, testing, and symptom checking. This kind of mapping strategy will allow companies to have all the information they need to keep their employees safe.
Quick and Easy Health Assessment
The first step in determining whether an employee can safely return to the workplace is a health screen. By completing a simple one-minute health check questionnaire provided by Safeter, an employee will be presented with an instant decision whether they can be at the workplace in person and also on the best practice of returning to work or staying home.
The second step needed for businesses to safely reopen is more education. There are now thousands of articles and information circulating around about business strategies and reopening practices in the time of COVID-19. No one has time to sort through so much information and then implement it in the workplace. Safeter provides you with a toolkit that includes training and education materials, blog articles, webinars, and an operations checklist. The more educated a business and its employees are, the easier it will be to traverse these uncertain times smoothly.
Rotating Employee Schedules
Social distancing in the workplace has now become an even larger hurdle that businesses are trying to figure out. Alternative employee scheduling and coming up with last-minute changes if employees do become ill, has turned into an HR nightmare. With Safeter’s scheduling assistance, you can make sure the schedules run smoothly and employees are able to maintain a safe distance from one another.
One of the more complicated things for a workplace to accomplish is to write policies for COVID-19 testing. Most businesses are still trying to figure out when, where, and if employees need to be tested. Safeter gives you access to manage employee testing and even offers an option to have a saliva test kit mailed to you (coming soon).
In order for businesses to continue operating during the time of COVID-19,
having the proper information at your fingertips is an imperative resource. Safeter is the step businesses need to take to ensure safe business practices and a thriving economy for the future.
