While Oracle begin to raise growing questions around COVID-19, there are numerous fresh and unparalleled problems affecting multiple organisations and HR practitioners.
In an effort to help, Oracle offer our current Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud customers free access to our Workforce Health and Safety solution until the pandemic is over. This module will help our clients address important health and safety concerns in the workforce and provide crucial answers, including:
- What has been subjected to the infection in my organisation?
- Are the buildings common areas been thoroughly cleaned?
- Will we have adequate maintenance and employee safety supplies?
- When can I contact workers and let them know there has been an incident?
- Will I need to alert public health officials at local level? What data do I want to share?
- How will I be confident that we have been reporting an accident and taking appropriate action?
Employees can use this knowledge anywhere they need it — from handheld devices to desktop computers — so they can see this application as a “click for accident response.” It offers a variety of directions to support HR practitioners and supervisors take the appropriate action to support keep the workers healthy.
When an accident is identified by an employee or HR director, the program directs the event to whoever is appointed to fix it and respond promptly. This also gives the person who identified the occurrence an email update, stating the complaint has been obtained and is being worked on.
In addition to offering an simple, secure and confidential mechanism for addressing health and safety concerns, our section on Workforce Health and Security also offers reassurance that complaints are being properly managed.
Oracle is dedicated to having their clients get up to date as soon as possible with Workplace Health and Safety. Oracle will include a white paper with step-by-step guidance for configuring simple accident management, and will also offer virtual “working hours” to assist with setup through the end of April.
