This risks creating something of a headache for business owners across Australia, especially among those already ravaged by the pandemic. Fortunately, workforce scheduling software can help to ease the transition, facilitating a positive solution to the Covid-19 vaccine conundrum.
Keep Track of Regulatory Requirements
Regulatory requirements can and do change — the rule changes listed above both took place in the first weeks of October and may shift again in the future. What's more, if you are operating across state or territory boundaries, you may find yourself bound by different regulations. With automated features, scheduling software platforms like Alloc8 can make sure that the latest regulations are adhered to.
Manage Covid-19 Vaccine Statuses
Which jobs specific to your organisation carry a vaccine requirement? Which members of your team are fully vaccinated? With Alloc8, you will be able to store and leverage this data, scheduling the right personnel and matching them to the right jobs.
Schedule Covid-19 Testing
You may need to schedule Covid-19 tests for your workforce. This may be to provide peace of mind and improve morale following a localised outbreak, or it could be to keep your business in line with regulation in your area. Whatever the reason, you can craft tailored forms for your workforce, capturing Covid-19 testing data for your files. You can also schedule testing around your employees' working hours, minimising inconvenience for the affected employees and for your business as a whole.
Provide Supporting Documents
The Alloc8 workforce scheduling platform supports uploading and management of document files and images. This can be very important in achieving peace of mind for employees and clients alike, who may want to know that a robust system of Covid-19 testing and vaccination checking is in place. These files may also be necessary for compliance. As mentioned above, business owners in Victoria need to be able to provide documentary evidence and records when requested, and Alloc8 makes storage and management of these documents simple and straightforward.
Look Forward to Covid-19 Recovery with Alloc8 Workplace Scheduling Software
While Covid-19 vaccine regulations may provide short-term difficulties for business owners, it is hoped that they will accelerate the road to recovery. With Alloc8 on your side, you will be able to navigate these difficulties with relative ease.
