How has Covid risk changed since the beginning of the pandemic?
More than seven months have passed since Coronavirus began to alter our lives in ways that we have never experienced or could have imagined. From a UK PLC perspective, there was no text book, cheat sheet or tried and tested business continuity plan that could be relied upon as a silver bullet.
Rather, businesses both large and small have simply had to take each new challenge as it comes – and work out the risks, opportunities and threats that they have to navigate in order to remain safe, compliant – and in profit.
Arguably, Health, Safety and HR professionals have felt the impact of these challenges in the workplace more than most, as employees, shareholders and board members look to them to supply data, interpret government advice and update processes to steer them through the ever-changing legal and economic landscapes caused by Covid.
As a health and safety solutions provider, we have been the first port of call for many risk professionals as they look to us to respond to their changing EHS technology needs to help them manage changing Covid risks throughout the pandemic. Our response has not been a “one size fits all” approach and we have been proactive in continually innovating our Covid health surveillance and tracing platform to meet changing needs and government guidance, most notably:
March 2020: The onset of the pandemic
Product launch: Fit2Work
Free to all UK businesses, we launched a simple employee health surveillance tool that empowered organisations to keep their key workers safe and support those working from home or furloughed.
June 2020: Coming out of national lockdown
Product Launch: Safe2Day v.1.0
As more and more businesses began to reopen, we enhanced our Covid solution by releasing a new version, branded Safe2Day. This system was built upon the existing Fit2Work platform to further support businesses by strengthening their Covid secure measures to help keep Covid out of the workplace, address employee “Covid Anxiety” and effectively plan resource requirements by assessing who is and who isn’t fit to work.
October 2020: Preparing for a second wave
Product Launch: Safe2Day v.2.0
As government guidelines get increasingly more complex and regionally focussed via a fast-changing “risk tier” system, we have added further functionality to the Safe2Day solution, providing businesses with the confidence to maintain Covid secure operations, stepping up control measures to include contact tracing and providing access to advanced data analytics for effective Covid management.
