During the first national lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic, a UK construction firm needed to reassure their staff and clients that safety was their #1 priority on site
With an average of 100 app interactions per week, staff were able to report how they were feeling from day to day
Staff were able to check into sites safely via the mobile app, using facial recognition and GPS technology on the phone
On average, the Fit for Work system alerted management to 2 potential health, safety and wellbeing risks per week
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.
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.
