New Workplace Guidelines Have Employers Looking For an Easy Solution
Contractors are scrambling in the wake of the new workplace safety guidelines recently released by the Centers for Disease Controls (CDC). As Safe Site Check In has been reporting, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky stated that fully vaccinated people in the U.S. can resume activities, both inside and outside, without having to socially distance or wear a mask. Additionally, OSHA updated their guidance for workplaces following CDC recommendations. For many safety experts, there will be various approaches to updating the screening procedures at jobsites and offices. Some less-functional approaches may include clipboard and a sign-in sheet, and others may include an internally developed tools based on Excel Spreadsheets or Google Forms. While those products are widely used in numerous business processes and data collections, Safe Site Check In provides distinct advantages to these options. We’d like to share them with you.
First, we’d like to share some insight into questions that site managers and operators are asking our team as they implement Safe Site Check In to their single site or multi-site projects.
Safe Site Check In’s Head of Product Tom Tortolani broke down FAQs that site operators are bringing to our product development team as they implement these new CDC guidelines on site.
There are many factors to track on a job site, starting with employees and including subcontractors, delivery personnel, and other visitors related to the project. Site safety and compliance managers will need to cross-reference those classifications with COVID vaccine stage-related factors like:
- Those fully vaccinated
- Those non-vaccinated
- Those vaccinated with their first shot but not their second
- Those who have received both shots of a 2-shot vaccination but are still inside the 14-day window
- Those who decline to state their vaccination status
There are other factors to consider, including mask use, social distancing commitments, and proper sterilization of tools and equipment on site.
While these can be tracked using a clipboard or shared documents online, they don’t always translate to complete site transparency or real-time access.
