Employee Contact Tracing Tool Datasheet

New Kronos tool helps quickly identify employees potentially exposed to COVID-19 in the workplace.

The Employee Contact Tracing Tool datasheet explains how you can use your Kronos® system to quickly identify employees potentially exposed to COVID-19.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), when someone is infected with a communicable disease such as a virus, those around them are at higher risk of becoming infected themselves and of potentially transmitting the illness to others.* To minimise this risk, those who have had contact with an afflicted person need to be notified as quickly as possible so they can receive appropriate care and isolate themselves to reduce further spread.

The process for monitoring people in close contact with someone who is infected is known as “contact tracing”. As outlined by the WHO, this comprises three steps:

  • Contact identification
  • Contact listing
  • Contact follow-up

In the workplace, this process can be cumbersome without visibility into who was working when and with whom. Having a tool to quickly identify employees who may have come into contact with an afflicted individual is business critical.

The Kronos Employee Contact Tracing Tool uses employee time and attendance entries collected by a customer’s Kronos system to help identify potential contacts who were working at an identified location at the same time as an afflicted employee. This easy-to-use tool comes with self-service installation instructions and is available to customers at no charge.
