Who Should Be Checking Contractor and Visitor Covid Passes?

Posted: 29 Oct '2021 by Yogesh

The coronavirus outbreak of 2020 has meant several new changes for businesses around the world.

With new regulations coming in and the need for ensuring that everyone inside the workplace is vaccinated against the coronavirus, businesses are often confused if they are required to check the covid pass for their contractors and visitors. In this article, we will discuss who should be checking the contractor’s or visitor’s covid pass.

Who Should Be Checking Contractor’s or Visitor’s Covid Pass?

In the United Kingdom, the Government has made it mandatory for every CQC-registered care home to check the covid pass of their contractors and visitors, before allowing them to enter the facility. The CQC-registered care homes not only have to check the covid passes, but they first need to ensure that each and everyone involved directly or indirectly with the operations of care homes are fully vaccinated.

Notably, only those contractors and visitors are allowed to enter the care home who have a valid covid pass. If the contractors or the visitors do not have a valid covid pass, then the authorized personnel must ensure that those individuals are denied entry inside the care home. But how can CQC-registered care homes check the covid pass of contractors and visitors?

DigiGreet Visitor Management System

DigiGreet visitor management system is a modern-day, effective visitor management system that allows businesses, including CQC-registered care homes to check the covid pass. Notably, the DigiGreet visitor management system helps the care home providers to automate the checking of contractors and visitors' covid passes.

By automating the validation process of the covid passes, care home providers also eliminate  potential human errors, therefore, ensuring that they are always following the regulations as described by the Government. Notably, the DigiGreet system also stores the details of the Covid pass, including details such as the expiry date. This will help the CQC-registered care homes to seamlessly check the covid pass at a future date when they again visit the facility thus only requiring them to actually show their pass if the previous pass has expired.

Apart from helping the CQC-registered care homes with the ability to check covid passes, the DigiGreet visitor management system also provides them with a host of other features, including badge printing, Covid health questionnaires, integration with an access control system such as Paxton, and many more.

Final Thoughts

While the Government has made it mandatory for CQC-registered care homes to check the covid pass of contractors and visitors, other businesses and schools could also check the covid passes of their visitors to ensure a safe and secure working environment for staff and employees.
