Self-Evaluation – employee self-evaluation of risk, including a series of questions used prior to entering active work areas:

  • Am I experiencing symptoms?
  • Have I been around others who have tested positive or have been ordered to self-isolate?
  • Have I traveled to areas determined to be hotspots?
  • Have I left the country?

If the employee answers “yes” to any of these questions, they are being directed to consult a physician or utilize Geo-Solutions’ medical monitoring service to further evaluate their risk prior to entering a company facility or jobsite.
