online accomplishment of the Health Symptoms Questionnaire/Health Checklist for

all personnel in compliance to the DTI-DOLE Interim Guidelines on Workplace

workplaces; filling-up of the daily health symptoms questionnaire for employees,

employers and clients/visitors; thermal check for everyone at the entrance of the

building which is inputted daily for monitoring and tracing of

symptomatic/asymptomatic clients, workers and even employers, as the case may

started on 13 July 2020 intended for all DOLE-X employees. As simple as clicking


the link or scanning the QR code provided will immediately connect one to the online

format in seconds. The information provided by the user is automatically generated

for a real time assessment of health and health-related conditions of everyone

entering the workplace.


This innovation quickly addresses the need of faster process cycle time in assessing

and monitoring the results for quick detection and institute control on the spread of

COVID-19 in the workplace.


The QR Code registration of health information initially covers all employees of the

DOLE-X regional office and all Provincial/Field Offices in Northern Mindanao of the

Department and ultimately may be required from all visitors and clients of all DOLE-X

offices in the region.
