FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pandemic Inspires New Business to Make Construction Sites Safer
AUSTIN, TX-- The rise of COVID-19 cases in the construction industry inspired new business, JobSiteCheck, to provide a method to lessen the spread of the virus among job sites across the country.
This past April, construction workers in 31 states were declared as essential workers, putting them at increased risk of infection. According to Austin Public Health, construction sites in Texas join health care, grocery stores, and other industries that have been hit hardest by the spread of COVID-19. It’s a trend that is playing out in other states around the country, including Nevada, North Carolina, Maine and Washington D.C. The need for greater worker safety is a top concern as more states resume construction activity.
Using QR based technology, JobSiteCheck’s contactless solution allows workers to seamlessly sign in to a jobsite using their personal mobile device. By reducing the physical interaction between workers and staff, the application promotes onsite safety and aims to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
The software doesn’t require an app download. Instead, employees simply use their phone’s camera to capture a QR code posted at the entry points of each job site. A browser-based form is then used to complete a questionnaire related to risk and possible exposure, after they are quickly granted or denied access to the site. Using an admin dashboard, project leadership can manage safety at the job sites by seeing how many workers have passed or failed at entry. The well throughout dashboard allows for a high level overview of multiple job sites and multiple trades.
Tala Matchett, long time construction executive and strategic advisor to JobSiteCheck, shares how their product reduces contamination among essential workers.
“JobSiteCheck exists to help site managers implement best practices to keep their teams healthy and safe. It’s an efficient application built around the COVID-19 challenges. We’re laser focused on helping companies solve this problem immediately.”
