Construction firms striving to fully deploy workers while preventing the spread of COVID-19 now have a touchless way to check-in to a construction site while protecting personal health data. Available from start-up Safe Site Check In LLC, the Safe Site Check In app streamlines the job site check-in process for construction workers, subcontractors, facilities staff, property managers, inspectors, and realtors.
To use Safe Site Check In, employees and visitors point their smartphone at a unique QR code posted at the job site and answer COVID-19 health-related questions required by local health directives, no download required. They are denied or approved access to the construction site and receive a daily digital entry badge. Site supervisors and HR administrators can see the health status of all onsite employees and visitors and are immediately notified of potential health issues.
Personal health information is stored on the user’s smartphone, not by the construction company. This provides an added level of privacy while eliminating the risks and costs of HIPAA compliance and local data privacy laws.
The construction industry represents 6.3 percent of the GDP and employs more than 11 million people in the U.S. Yet many construction firms have outdated and time consuming processes for job site check-in.
These include paper-based forms and shared tablets that don’t allow for social distancing, are risky to handle and time consuming to enforce. Enterprise suite solutions are cannot quickly address the reopening needs of small to medium-sized businesses. Safe Site Check In has broad applicability across a variety of industries as businesses and consumers work together to ensure public health and safety while protecting private health information.
