Riskex Ltd, based in Knowlhill, has been working on the software during lockdown.

They have now been sponsored by Rackspace so they can give their Covid-19 health assessment free of charge to every company in the UK.

"We need to get the message out to all companies and organisations in MK", said chief executive officer Mark Delo.

The Riskex health check is free

Riskex uses cloud-based software, AssessNET and the software does not need to be downloaded.

Companies of any size can access the Covid-19 health assessment dashboard and each assessment takes just 30 seconds.

There is simple online questionnaire that can be eamiled to employees. The results are displayed in a secure dashboard which gives managers up to date information about their workers – helping to identify who is fit to work, and who may be at risk.

Mark said: "With government guidelines constantly being updated, there is a pressing need to safely emerge from lockdown and get people back to the workplace.

This tool helps restore confidence – both for employees, who know their employer is taking action, and for customers who can be confident about the health status of anyone visiting.

"It will help you, as an employer, understand where concerns exist and enable you to provide assistance to those most in need. As we come out of lockdown, you will also be able to use this tool to help minimise the risk of the virus entering your workplace."

One local employee said: “If we’d had it earlier, it would have been better for us. Employees like it too and have said they wished management had had access earlier.”
