Are your company’s COVID-19 temperature and symptom screeners properly trained? To protect your company as much as possible from complaints, lawsuits, local labor issues, etc., it is critically important to:
- Establish a consistent process for conducting such screening and excluding symptomatic individuals to promote workplace
- Adopt measures to mitigate the risk of claims under laws related to discrimination and medical privacy; and
- Be mindful of employee relations considerations.
Temperature and symptom screeners play an important role in accomplishing these objectives, so it’s a good idea to ensure that they are properly trained to take temperatures and screen for symptoms. MCAA’s new training resource, COVID-19 Temperature and Symptom Screener Training, will help you provide the proper training.
