GUIDELINE ON THE SUBMISSION OF COVID-19 RELATED HEALTH DATA FROM WORKPLACES TO THE NATIONAL DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
Interventions at workplaces and work activities will assist in reduction of transmission of Covid-19 infections. These interventions can appropriately be directed by the data emerging from workplaces about the unfolding pandemic.
The objectives of this Guideline of the National Department of Health is to effectively collect, collate and analyse workplace data on clinical (symptom) screening, vulnerable employees, Covid-19 infections and contacts to prevent further escalation of the pandemic and to provide clarity to the relevant stakeholders about the data and data reporting process as outlined in the above legislation, and to streamline the reporting tasks of employers.
The interim guidelines are based on what is currently known about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The National Institute for Communicable Diseases will update these interim guidelines as needed and as additional information becomes available.
