In an interview with Industrial Equipment News, our VP of Marketing, Lori Peters talks about the use of Proximity Trace on worksites and how workers are responding to the technology.
“We developed Proximity Trace as a tool to help workers feel safe returning to work. The feedback we’ve received from workers, across a broad range of industries, has been overwhelmingly positive. They’re finding that the proximity alerts are quite effective at helping them adapt to the new way of working. We were very focused on worker privacy when we developed Proximity Trace. No location data is being collected and there is no offsite location monitoring.
Some clients even choose to anonymize their workers in the system with select individuals responsible for running contact trace reports and notifying those who are potentially infected if a positive case is identified in the workplace. At the end of the day, our goal is to limit the number of close contact interactions in the workplace to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 while helping facilities operate safely.”
