Anvil Group’s COVID-19 Fit to Work app has been shortlisted for the Tomorrow’s Health and Safety Awards 2021. Now in their ninth year, the awards are designed to honour the game-changing products and services that have had the biggest impact on the health and safety industry over the past 12 months.
The Fit to Work app prompts employees to self-certify that they are free of COVID-19 symptoms before coming into work, enabling employers to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace. Available on iOS and Android devices, the app takes employees through a series of simple questions relating to the main COVID-19 symptoms, and delivers an initial diagnosis based on the answers submitted.
The app lets employees know whether they are deemed safe to enter their workplace or should stay at home and await further instructions. Employees’ self-certification results are immediately sent to their employer, enabling employers to remain compliant with health and safety legislation and identify any potential cases early.
Matthew Judge, Group Managing Director, Anvil Group: “Even with social distancing measures, appropriate facilities for additional hand hygiene, and undertaking robust and regular workplace cleaning, government advice also stipulates that early identification of the infected and those in close contact with them, is essential. By developing the Fit to Work app, we’re providing a solution that will help organisations to navigate a return to the workplace safely and with confidence.”
Anvil’s Fit to Work app helps organisations to demonstrate that they have implemented a ‘safe system of work’ to mitigate against the spread of COVID-19.
The app is the latest in a range of COVID-19 services developed by Anvil which includes client, industry and country specific pandemic information; daily reports and medical fact sheets; educational webinars; additional occupational health services; and antibody testing.
