New Service Offerings and Complimentary Software for COVID-19 Compliance Management
As a leader of workplace safety and compliance, HB NEXT has been working aggressively to create solutions that allow our Essential Services clients to continue work while managing the complexities of COVID safety. This past week we launched on-site COVID screening protocols for 10 sites across the Southeast and our new COVID compliance module for our SafetyCloud software is planned to launch as early as this week, offered free for all SafetyCloud customers.
With the announcement that the State of Georgia will begin reopening this Friday, there is a feeling that things may finally start to get back to normal. While this is great news for many, business owners and managers are faced with another daily challenge, managing COVID-19 in the workplace.
In March, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a list of 16 measures that Critical Infrastructure Entities must implement in their operations to mitigate the exposure and spread of COVID-19 among its workforce. These items include screening and evaluating workers, sanitizing and hand washing, prohibiting group gatherings, implementing signage, and allowing teleworking for all possible workers. These measures won’t stop here, and we can expect that these 16 measures are just the beginning of a new norm that will evolve in a post COVID-19 economy.
COVID-19 has infiltrated and upended businesses across the U.S., and now as the economy begins to reopen, companies and managers are given the dauting task of ensuring the virus does not infiltrate its employees and customers. This task is not to be taken lightly as OSHA announced that any confirmed COVID-19 case is categorized as an OSHA recordable incident. This is a scary thought for business owners in construction that rely on a good EMR for landing jobs and keeping insurance premiums as low as possible. So, now businesses must scramble to ensure they are complying with new regulations, keeping the right documentation, and protecting their workers.
HB NEXT On-Site COVID Screening and Software Solutions
To assist our clients with these new regulations, we have already been supporting clients with policy development and implementation, as well as on-site worker screening and social distancing inspections. But, now we plan to roll out a COVID-19 compliance module that will be featured in our newly revamped SafetyCloud Software platform. The module is designed to track the scanning of each worker (on jobsites or in offices), conduct COVID-19 daily inspections, train workers, track sign-offs on new policies, and aggregate data for compliance and management.
This COVID-19 Compliance Module will be offered for FREE to all our SafetyCloud and Compliance Partner customers as a sign of our dedication to protect our clients and ensure compliance across their organizations. We will also be offering a complimentary single-location subscription to all new customers as well, beginning as early as Monday, April 27th in alignment with the State of Georgia’s reopening.
As we enter an uncertain time in a post COVID-19 economy, HB NEXT will continue to provide and implement solutions that will protect our clients and improve their operations.
