Ontario Company Launches Solution for Firms That Must Track Employee Exposure to COVID-19

OTTAWA, ON, JULY 14, 2020 – Vocantas, an Ottawa based technology company with over 15 years of

experience working with Canadian healthcare providing secure automated communications, has

developed an easy to use solution to help Canadian businesses satisfy the government's new COVID-19

guidelines.

Under the Canada Labour Code, employers have the responsibility to keep workers and workplaces safe

and free of hazards, and the government has extended this to include keeping workers safe of exposure

to COVID-19. Employers are now expected to track and report COVID-19 cases in their workplaces and

workers have the right to refuse to work if they have reason to believe that they are at risk of

contracting COVID-19.

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.
