The global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have truly changed our lives. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, we have taken health and safety protocols seriously. The government has required us to wear face masks in public places, and we are strongly advised to wash our hands as frequently as we can and socially distance ourselves from each other.
When the pandemic broke out, public establishments closed, and the government prohibited social gatherings, leisure activities, and large events. Students had no other choice but to resort to homeschooling, and organizations have implemented skeletal workforce arrangements. These extreme measures were all taken to keep the virus from spreading like wildfire.
We are battling with COVID-19 for nearly nine months now, and most of us have adjusted to the new norm. Public establishments and public transport have reopened with imposed health and safety protocols.
Some organizations have allowed only some of their employees to report on-site to avoid crowding. Practicing good hygiene and social distancing are now a part of our lives. Indeed, we have learned how to live with COVID-19, but can we say we are 100% safe from being infected by the virus?
As businesses are now allowing their employees to work on-site, safety may not be as risk-free as they thought. Sure, these organizations require their employees to wear face masks and face shields inside their offices. However, studies say that the virus lives on surfaces between several hours and several days.
Fingerprint biometrics attendance system is considered a hotspot of the virus as it is a highly touched surface. With this knowledge, fingerprint-based timekeeping systems are still widely used in the country. Organizations that use this system may unknowingly be putting their employees’ health and safety at risk.
The ongoing pandemic drastically changed how we approach our health and safety today, and even once it is over. Let us not forget that viruses may spread without our knowing, and this kind of experience is not unlikely to happen again. Thus, there was a need to design a timekeeping service to help people stay safe and healthy without compromising efficiency and functionality.
This new timekeeping service is focused not only to fight COVID-19 but to help prevent a pandemic from happening again in the future. With that in mind, we will have to up our health and safety precautions for our benefit and the benefit of our future generations to come.
