The Health Survey app provides a simple tool to help Fourth’s customers ensure that their shifts are staffed with healthy employees, reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection amongst their workforce and customers. Basic health information from employees is recorded and summarised to simple statuses, which helps managers to assess if they are safe to carry out their shifts or not.
Please note: The app is designed to be used alongside existing absence/sickness policies, which still need to be followed.
Please visit Health Survey app - User Guide for guidance on using the app.
This article shows how to assign the required User Access to employees and how the health statuses are displayed in the HR & Payroll product.
A User Permission can be applied within the Rota module so that only selected users can view Employee Health status information.

- Go to HR > Company Admin > Access Level Hierarchy
- Select Company Hierarchy and then the Hierarchy Level that the permission is to be added to
- In the 'Rotas Module' section, make a selection from the Access Level drop-down and then select Edit

The Employee Health Status page will display all employees within a Location.
All scheduled employees appear at the top of the page, grouped by job title. All non-scheduled employees will show at the bottom of the list, again, grouped by job title.
Employees on this page have their Health Statuses displayed, based on the answers they gave when completing the Health Survey - see Health Survey app - User Guide for further information.

Against all employees are several fields which will help managers to manage the resource within the Location. These include:
- Employee Name
- Employee Number
- Telephone Number
- Mobile Number
- Job Title
- Scheduled Shift Time 1
- Scheduled Shift time 2
- Employee Health Status
Users will only be able to view employees they have access to see within their User Permissions. The only exception to this is if the Permission that allows viewing of all employees within the rota is enabled.

Employee Health Status
An employee's Health Status is updated following their completion of the Health Survey via the app. The combination of answers to the questions generates the Health Status, as shown below. There are also statuses for when the employee has either not completed the survey or has not given consent for health data to be collected.
Employee has completed the survey and is in good health. They are considered safe to work.
Employee has completed the survey and has reported symptoms of Covid-19. They are considered as not safe to work.
Employee has not given consent for health data to be collected. No information available.
Employee has not completed the survey / Employee does not have a Fourth Account so cannot access the survey
Half Day Holidays
For businesses that utilise the Half Day Holiday functionality, an additional column will appear in the Employee Health Status page, which will be ticked if the employee has a half day holiday. The scheduled shift time will appear under the Shift Time 1 or Shift time 2 column.
