The simple ways Whip Around can help you meet your obligations and be better prepared for COVID-19 and your response
Employers have an obligation to develop policies and procedures for prompt identification and isolation of sick people. Three key elements to your response should include:
- Prompt identification and isolation of potentially infectious individuals is a critical step in protecting workers, customers, visitors and others at a worksite
- Employers should inform and encourage employees to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 if they suspect possible exposure
- Employers should develop policies and procedures for employees to report when they are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
We’ve been working with our customers to expand their current processes and management of the current COVID-19 situation using Whip Around’s current functionality, all quickly and easily. Delivering quick communication and messaging to your teams as well as enabling the procedure to enable your employees to report when they are sick or experiencing symptoms.
At a time when social distancing, communication and availability of information are critical to ensuring you are doing everything you can to protect your employees and your business, a digital solution to connect your team is an essential component to your response planning.
Simple steps you can take to roll out a COVID-19 plan
1. Driver/Employee reminders, to enable you to inform and encourage employees to self-monitor
Set daily alerts for your drivers, or wider employee group through the Reminders module
Remind them about best practices, company policy or updates
Remind your team daily, or multiple times a day to wash hands, wipe down assets and monitor their own wellbeing.
You can set these reminders up quickly and easily yourself, using some of our suggested messages to the right, or customize your own. Or feel free to contact us to get these set up for you.
2. Driver Wellness Reporting to enable the reporting procedures for employees if they feel sick or develop symptoms
In the coming days, we will also be launching some new functionality to enable you to ask questions related to driver wellness and health in the usual Whip Around inspection app and then track, monitor and manage these responses in the Manager’s Dashboard. You can also customize unique, standalone forms focused on employee wellness to enable your reporting process from anywhere.
Record a digital history of employee responses to protect your business from any unforeseen outcomes from unwell drivers. Use GPS location stamps to also manage any possible fallout from unwell employees
