Safe Work Return

Safe Employees, Safe Employer, Safe Work

With the introduction of COVID-19 in the United States in the first quarter of 2020, we have seen an unprecedented upheaval of social processes and a dramatic response to control of this deadly organism. The disruption of the social, economic, and personal norms have been devastating to employers and employees in most industries.

This virus is highly infectious, being easily transmitted from one individual to another This creates a somber and sobering reevaluation of many of the basic functions of society and the “new normal” moving forward that are particularly important for employers. The economic consequences of social distancing, closing businesses, and other mechanisms for the spread of disease have had a devastating effect on businesses, particularly small businesses.

There is no clear end in sight to the pandemic and employers must adapt to the “new normal” in order to get employees safely back to work and reboot the economy.

The New Normal

  • Covid-19 is invisible
  • The disease is highly contagious primarily spread between people
  • Every person you meet or work with could become infected and contagious and it may not be apparent
  • We cannot get to zero risk, we can only minimize probability of the spread of the disease
  • Employers need a solution “A Path” that identifies and manages risk, provides multiple layers of proactive protection, and safeguards to maintain control of workplace safety

As a result, there is considerable pressure to resume economic activity of the country and “restart the economy”. To safely resume economic activity within the United States, we will need a safe return to work solution for employers using non-invasive testing, an easy to use Symptom Checker, coupled with an Employee Education and Activity Tracker.

  • The government having access into your personal data
  • A technologically complex solution for your employees

What Employers Need

  • Protection of your Private data – You own your data and the actions taken on it
