The frequent and continuous health screening of all employees can significantly reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection at work places.
The following steps must be followed by all tourism companies at all work places:
Implement a strict system of screening employees and explain it to all employees in detail.
Take the temperature of every employee entering the work place or ahead of starting any work or services.
Use only non-contact thermometers, infrared or thermal scanner, to conduct temperature checks in a safe manner.
Ask employees if any of the following symptoms are present: dry cough, tiredness, aches and pains, nasal congestion, sore throat, or diarrhoea.
Conduct repeated daily temperature checks for all employees. It is recommended to conduct at least 3 checks: Beginning of the shift, middle of the shift, end of the shift.
Record the results in anonymized forms only accessible to dedicated management staff.
Ask employees returning from leave or business travel about their recent travel history and keep in mind that employees returning from high-risk areas might show symptoms of infection within 14 days after their return.
If you have a high number of employees arriving at the same time to work, you should set up a procedure and screening area ensuring the maintenance of 1.5-metres distance between people during the screening.
