While widespread vaccination has begun, businesses continue to take precautions against COVID-19 to ensure continuity in operations. Many companies are now administering PCR testing at the workplace. This practice is beneficial for not only the employees themselves, but also the employers. Employees who receive frequent testing can be more comfortable and motivated when coming to work and be aware of their health status. By having a screening process in place, the company can make sure that if a positive COVID-19 case is observed, other workers can be tested to take preemptive measures to contain the infection. Routine PCR testing can help management monitor the health status of employees even when they aren’t showing symptoms in order to contain the virus and prevent a company-wide spread.
With accurate contact tracing processes, management can identify the employees who are at risk and provide testing for them. Safe Steps goes one step further with the implementation of Social Distance Score. The algorithm analyzes the recorded interactions based on the distance between the users and the duration of the interaction, producing a numerical value that indicates the level of risk for each employee. Using the Social Distance Score, management can prioritize the employees with the lowest scores when planning for PCR testing.
Currently, more than 20 factories with 35.000 employees are using Safe Steps to benefit from fast administration of PCR testing to those who need it the most, making better business decisions and cutting costs with concrete risk analysis. The Social Distancing Score is also an efficient tool to educate employees on healthy workplace practices in the context of a pandemic. Instead of top-down approach, the Social Distance Score allows the employees to see how well they are complying with the regulations and adjust the way they work accordingly to keep themselves and others around them safe.
With Safe Steps, companies are able to complement manual methods of contact tracing and social distancing to boost efficiency and accuracy, yielding better results in risk management. With real-time social distance warnings, customers were able to prevent as many as 100 risky interactions per user. Customers also report an improvement in the accuracy of contact tracing activities, preventing a company-wide spread that may result in temporary production downtime or reduced productivity.
