Arcoro's New Mobile Form Now Allows Employers To Identify At-Risk Workers During the Clock-in Process to Protect their Companies and Comply with State Requirements
CALABASAS, Calif., April 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Arcoro, a proven provider of human resources management (HRM) solutions for high-risk industries, is proud to announce that its time and attendance tracking app now supports businesses in their efforts to screen workers for COVID-19 with a simple survey at clock-in.
To help protect Arcoro customers and their employees, the time and attendance app now includes an optional self-screening mobile health form, available at no additional cost. The questions appear just after workers enter their PIN and before they clock in to begin work.
The form asks employees two simple "yes or no" questions: first, whether they are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath; and second, whether they have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been told to self-isolate by a doctor or medical official.
If the worker answers "yes" to either question, they are advised to leave the worksite and seek medical attention.
States including Massachusetts, Delaware and Ohio are recommending or mandating such screening for certain workplaces. In addition, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued guidance for employers confirming they can legally screen employees regarding COVID-19 symptoms and require workers to leave the workplace if they are sick.
"Arcoro is eager to support our customers in any way we can during these uncertain times," said Arcoro CEO John O'Hara. "We're pleased we can help prevent the spread of coronavirus in workplaces and communities by making it easy to conduct this important, and in some cases required, health screening."
Arcoro customer Titan Roofing of Springfield, Massachusetts needed the COVID-19 self-screening mobile form to comply with guidelines and procedures issued by the Centers for Disease Control and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
"With the new self-screening form, our construction crews have the tools needed to ensure essential health and safety directives are part of the clock-in process," said Titan Roofing Payroll Administrator Edward Cole. "So on behalf of Titan Roofing, I'd like to thank Arcoro."
The COVID-19 mobile health form is available to new and existing users of the Arcoro time clock app.
