Daily risk screening protocol, integrated clinical support and data management capabilities prioritize safety when transitioning employees back into public spaces.
TORONTO — Canadian telemedicine provider, Wello, announced on July 13 the company has developed an integrated self-screening & reporting protocol to help manage the risk of bringing COVID-19 into the workplace.
Return to Workplace is an online tool that provides companies with accurate, real–time data on the eligibility of their workforce to return to the physical workplace safely, according to Wello.
In alignment with all Canadian provincial and territorial public health guidelines, employees answer a three–part questionnaire in the tool to determine any presence of health risk.
If an employee is not eligible to return, they are provided with access to clinical guidance on appropriate next steps and offered the necessary follow-up support.
“Businesses can play a role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 by conducting daily fit-for-work screening of employees before entering their physical workplaces,” said Wendy Smeltzer, national medical director, Wello, in a prepared statement. “This simple strategy can make a difference and give employees and customers reassurance and confidence that their health and safety is valued and protected.”
