While companies across the world grapple with closures of
their facilities due to coronavirus, many are looking to establish new safety
protocols that will enable a safer reopening of operations. But enforcing those
safety protocols and protecting employees is challenging without a system in
Redpoint’s technology uses tags and Ultra-wideband (UWB) signal
to track the location of people and equipment with extremely high accuracy,
even in complex industrial environments. If social distance parameters between
two workers are violated, the tag alarm will alert them to the hazard in
real-time. The violation will also be recorded for facility managers to review
later, providing insights on whether safety protocols are being followed.
Reports provide compliance insights across the entire
facility or by individual tags, enabling management to make necessary process
and layout adjustments and provide additional targeted training as appropriate.
To further reduce risk, set a maximum occupancy for the
facility or zones within the facility and monitor areas to avoid crowding.
Define geo-fenced areas, like cleaning stations, and track the
frequency of workers’ entry to these areas as well as the time spent in them.
This can help enforce handwashing or equipment cleaning protocols to further
reduce transmission of the coronavirus.
