A new touchless app aims to reduce the spread of Covid-19 on construction sites while protecting personal health information
Available from startup Safe Site Check In, LLC, the new app is designed to offer a streamlined and lower-cost way to check in to a construction site while protecting the health and personal data of the construction workers, subcontractors, facilities staff, property managers, inspectors, and realtors who need access.
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.
