workers have the right to refuse to work if they have reason to believe that they are at risk of
Vocantas Employee Symptom Tracker™ (EST) is a secure web-based solution that allows businesses to
collect information from employees in real-time using their phones by automated voice or via text.
Results can be easily viewed on a secure website with a unique login and real time alerts are sent to
managers if employees report that they have any symptoms related to COVID-19, taking the manual
effort out of contacting staff and tracking COVID-19 symptoms.
"We first built this tool to use in our own office and it has made our reporting process so much easier!
We now want to do our part and help other Canadian companies through this pandemic by offering this
quick to deploy solution at an affordable cost. We hope that every business in Canada will keep their
workforce safe by tracking the symptoms of their employees," said Gary Hannah, CEO Vocantas.
