According to Elmo the new module - COVIDsecure - enables employers to automate record keeping of the COVID-19 testing and vaccination status of their workforce, acting as the technology that supports businesses reopening safely post-lockdown.
“Employers can also configure periodic expiry alerts so they can be notified when an employee is due to update their vaccination or test status. The alert functionality is particularly useful for workers required by government regulation to submit for testing at regular intervals,” Elmo says.
“The new module makes it easy for employees to submit records of their COVID-19 vaccination or test results in a single, secure platform with strict access control measures.
“COVIDsecure also provides HR and leadership with a powerful dashboard to provide a real-time view of critical information to assist with COVID-19 risk management. This includes vaccination status of the workforce, testing compliance and recent test results, together with clear identification of any positive test results. The all-in-one dashboard provides HR with the tools to take prompt and proactive action.”
Elmo also says that alongside the ability to keep across compliance requirements, the COVIDsecure module provides employers with a library of COVID-19 HR policy templates - while the customisable templates can assist businesses looking for advice and materials to help them reopen their businesses in a COVIDsafe manner.
ELMO Software CEO Danny Lessem says it’s now possible to leverage off technology to facilitate the safe reopening of our economy.
“Businesses need to be able to keep running in a COVID-19 environment, but they need to be able to do it safely. They can’t sustain reduced activity forever, nor can the community do without their services for an indefinite amount of time either.
“To be able to operate safely and in line with Government regulation it’s crucial businesses have the right tools at their disposal.
“While the country is moving ahead with the vaccine roll-out, it’s important that we look to the tools we will need in the near future to manage COVID-19 in the community and the workplace.
“Many businesses have announced they will be mandating vaccinations among their workforce, ELMO’s COVIDsecure module makes it easier to keep records of the vaccination and testing status of that workforce.
“ELMO’s COVIDsecure module gives employers a tool to help keep their employees and the community safe,” Lessem concluded.
