It might be stormy now, but the rain doesn’t last forever. Aren’t we all just greatly waiting for this thunderstorm to end, so that we can just go back to the office? I certainly do. Let me take you through how we can swim across this phase together safely using dtSmartWorks360.
Every country has been imposing different rules/guidelines that businesses need to comply with, to ensure maximum safety for their employees and the society. During these challenging times, the fear of uncertainty can surpass the fear of the cause itself. So, what needs to be done to ensure people don’t go to their office everyday living with this fear? Data.
Data such as employees who should come to the office and those who should work from home, those with medical conditions or those who have elderly people to take care of. Not to forget the importance of integrating with various government and health systems to ensure a certain employee is not a COVID patient or in close contact or those who still need to remain in quarantine and can’t come to office. Capturing these inputs and implementing calculated safety measures not only improves your workplace, but also makes sure your employees are no longer uncertain about their work environment, thus fortifying their mental peace.
Can you see how a small add-on can result in a vital impact? With that being said, let’s see where else and why would we require this daily dosage of data.
At the reception/entrance:
Once the employees arrive at the workplace, we should capture their vitals like temperature, oxygen level, pulse by integrating with advanced wearable devices that can generate those metrics and also capture additional details like recent travel history using touchless surveys.
During unforeseeable occurrences:
While people are doing work from their desk, if there is a case of any sudden appearance of any suspicious symptoms like a high fever, we need to manage that situation in real time and trigger a case that can be managed and tracked. This trigger should ensure the following things:
For future advancement in safety measures:
As and when we keep collecting new data, we get a better understanding of the covid19, importance of quarantine, etc. In order to ensure employers are compliant with the government rules, it is crucial to have real time visibility of the workspace occupancy levels, crowd management, employees’ health status, etc. Reports on these different vitals allows us a chance to collaborate with health officials to generate forecasting and machine learning models to possibly identify who might get infected and reflect back those predictions to the employee roster creation process. At the end of the day, don’t we all just want the safety measures to improvise?
