Touchless Tech Helps Projects Continue During Covid-19
July 23, 2020

A touchless technology is helping more than 67 construction sites, including 50 throughout San Francisco, move forward with commercial construction projects while helping stop the spread of Covid-19.

Launched in June 2020, “Safe Site Check In” is designed to take sophisticated technology and make it easy for anybody to use. Employees point their smartphone at a unique QR-coded poster hanging at a job site or lobby, securely answer Covid-19-related health questions, and immediately receive notification on whether they’re approved or denied access to a site.

All health information is kept on the user’s phone. The health records are not stored, yet job-site supervisors are immediately alerted when a person is denied access.

“As the HR leader at a small construction company, I’m responsible for making sure we comply with state and federal regulations and that we have the right systems in place to protect and prevent injuries on the job, including the spread of viruses,” said Matthew Bickerstaff, HR manager, Premier Structures, Inc. “With Safe Site Check In, we’ve eliminated the old school paper and pen sign-in process and replaced it with a secure way to know who is onsite at any time, and that employees are able to safely perform their duties.”

Using the touchless technology from Safe Site Check In, hundreds of construction workers and visitors including subcontractors, property managers, realtors, and inspectors are able to privately check-in to a job site or commercial building knowing they’re surrounded by symptom-free colleagues.

“We knew going back to work would be different, so we spent time during the shutdown evaluating ways to safely reopen and took a hard look at different technology options,” said Kyle Peacock, president, Peacock Construction. “Many offered terrific features, but for a mid-sized construction firm like ours, it was more than we needed.

“With Safe Site Check In, we have exactly what we need to keep employees and visitors safe,” Peacock said. “The added benefit of digitizing and streamlining the check-in process saves us hours each week–time that we can spend accelerating our efforts without putting people at risk of contracting Covid-19 on the job.”

Safe Site Check In is available immediately and priced at $2.00 per day, per construction site, for an unlimited number of employee and visitor check-ins.
