The purpose of the COVID-19 module is to allow people to report either a suspicion of or actual COVID-19 illness. It is designed to facilitate effective communications to HR and provide advice to affected individuals based on government guidelines.
COVID-19 reporting will assist with protecting other workers within your organisation with the aim of minimising the spread of the disease. It will allow HR to contact staff and contractors who may have come in to contact with affected people and then take the relevant action. Many of the fields are based on reporting requirements from the World Health Organisation.
