IDENTIFICATION AND MANAGEMENT OF AT-RISK EMPLOYEES
Government regulations highlight that employers must implement measures for employees who are 60 years or older or those with comorbidities to facilitate their safe return to work including introducing special measures to limit their exposure to COVID-19 and, where possible, that these employees work from home. The Employee Intelligence Dashboard on the Employer Zone provides employers with a view of their employees at higher risk should they contract COVID-19, based on their age and underlying health conditions.
Discovery Health has developed the ability for employers to request an email to be sent to high-risk employees on their behalf outlining the preventive measures these employees should take. As further support, employers are able to directly email their management teams informing them of this process. This benefit is only available for employees who are members of Discovery Health Medical Scheme.
