Contact Tracing Feature of TRIVA Product Expected to Improve Safety and Efficiency for Construction Sites in Wake of COVID-19 ChallengesPosted Apr 30, 2020
Fort Lauderdale, FL - - - When it comes to construction site safety, TRIVA has developed a reputation as the industry go-to for real-time data collection that helps improve project management and operations. Now, the company is expanding its commitment to clients with introduction of an expanded contact tracing feature to address the unique challenges brought on by COVID-19.
TRIVA is the creator of the Smart Safety Tag – a small, weather-proof, impact-resistant device that attaches to the back of a construction worker’s helmet. It can provide an extensive range of data including headcount, a team contact list, inventory tracking and management, workflow and deliveries. The disposable device also allows for project alerts to and from team members, assignment of shifts, and even location of team members in case of accidents. All of the data is available via the associated dashboard from any mobile or desktop device.
The Smart Safety Tag’s newly expanded contact tracing feature provides reports that allow managers to identify any workers who had been within six feet of a co-worker who tests positive for COVID-19 during any designated time period. Likewise, when employers are required to have limited personnel on sites, it can verify that they are in compliance. The Tag’s contact tracing also lets managers supervise projects remotely and does away with the need for physical sign-ins by workers.
“Our company was founded to support the success of construction companies and real estate developers and help ensure the safety of the workers – and that has taken on new significance during this pandemic,” explained George Franco, a systems, robotics and software expert and founder and CEO of TRIVA. “With the improved contact tracing feature, organizations can avoid having to shut down an entire jobsite if one of their workers has tested positive for COVID-19. It has the added advantage of letting supervisors know which workers are sticking to social distancing guidelines to reduce risk.”
“The pandemic has raised the pressures we all face from wellness to economics. TRIVA wants to provide our clients with the tools to help them continue to operate safely and ensure their employees are able to earn a paycheck while protecting the community as a whole,” he added.
The sensors on TRIVA’s Smart Safety Tag auto-detect people, equipment, and materials on construction projects for more efficient operations from start to finish. These data points, which can number in the hundreds or thousands, are used to analyze the productivity of the job and provide tools for safety. With TRIVA, there is improved access to quality information critical for construction management of everything from high-rise buildings to industrial plants. The device also has proved to help eliminate human error and inaccurate stats while improving communication.
