Hartford Business Journal recently interviewed leaders in Connecticut’s construction community to find out how COVID-19 is affecting business and learn what steps they’re taking to keep operations running. They also spoke with our CTO, Justin Morgenthau about our newest Proximity Trace solution and how it can help construction companies and other industries achieve their safety goals.
“It actually has a conditioning effect,” Morgenthau said. “You wear this for a couple of hours and you’re much more aware of your proximity to other individuals.”
Proximity Trace also has a contact-tracing element that could be useful in fighting COVID-19’s spread, Morgenthau said. The device not only signals that workers came in close proximity, but also records the interaction.
If a worker is diagnosed with COVID-19, the employer can track who that person came in close contact with to determine who else may be at risk.
