Our response to Covid-19

At Helpers Near Me, we are taking every initiative to ensure a Covid-19 Safe Employers-Workers Connect.

Covid-19 has destabilized many lives.

Among all, the severely affected ones are the unorganised Blue-collar Workers, primarily the self-employed & the daily wage earners – like Domestic Workers, Drivers, School Workers, Restaurant Workers, Salon Workers, Office Workers, Factory Workers, Store Workers, Hospital Workers, Construction Workers & many more.

And as it seems, unless the vaccine is developed & produced, so far there’s no system or process which can guarantee an individual’s Covid-19 related health concerns in the future.

However, based on the recent records of Workers (& Employers), Helpers Near Me is taking every possible step to ensure a Covid-19 Safe Employers-Workers Connect.

We are taking a Covid-19 Safe Self Declaration from both the Workers, and also our Employers.

Here’s how the process works:

SELF DECLARATION BY THE WORKERS

In line with the Government’s Aarogya Setu initiative, Helpers Near Me is conducting a self-assessment screening of every worker for Covid-19.

Based on the worker’s self-disclosure of their medical symptoms in the recent past, if any, this assessment process is helping us in screening & ensuring a Safe Employers-Workers Connect.

Helpers Near Me is recording the assessments over the phone, and to a certain extent evaluating the likelihood of Covid-19 infection.

This assessment process automatically filters out & quarantines the individuals who’ve declared any symptoms of Fever, Cough, Sore Throat or Fatigue in the recent past.

Furthermore, if any of the workers declare they were tested for Covid-19 recently, the system is placing those individuals in an auto-quarantine mode on our platform, unless if they present a Covid-19 negative report issued by the testing centres.

Additionally, Helpers Near Me is continuously updating and blocking all the containment zones on the platform, as declared by the Government.

The blocked areas automatically eliminate any possibility of Employers-Workers Connect from such containment zones.

SELF DECLARATION BY THE EMPLOYERS

In every order, we are requesting all our Customers to self-declare that neither they nor their family members have experienced any symptoms of Fever, Cough, Sore Throat or Fatigue in the recent past.

Before placing an order, we are requesting all to declare that they have not been tested for Covid-19 and that their locality doesn’t come under any of the containment zones declared by the Government.

To ensure a ‘Covid-19 Safe Employers-Workers Connect’, the system & the process is being reviewed and updated every day.
