Design Rationale

COVID-19 held up construction work

COVID-19 held up construction work

Design Rationale - a specialist architectural metalwork and glazing contractor - needed to put additional safety measures in place to protect their staff and to reassure the main contractor that project work was safe to continue.

The company looked for new technologies that could support a safe return to work, including temperature checking devices, thermal imaging cameras and supporting mobile software.

Fit for Work was used to remobilise with 100% compliance

The company activated their entire workforce on the Fit for Work app within weeks of the government announcing the lockdown measures. Operatives were asked a series of safety screening questions via the Fit for Work app as they entered and exited client project sites.

Using the Fit for Work app to reassure their staff and the main contractor, Design Rationale were able to complete work on the new Elizabeth Line at Tottenham Court Road and Farringdon stations.
