WakeCap Assists with Social Distancing

July 2, 2020

Construction companies need to automate processes and streamline activities to ensure they mitigate and reduce the risks while maintaining operations. WakeCap is a unique solution that provides real-time location services to monitor the workforce. The solution connects workers with zero-training, zero-configuration, and a wearable solution integrated into existing personal safety equipment, like hard hats. 

Besix, a Euro 3.3 B/year general contractor and one of their clients, was confronted with a case of Covid-19 in a worker who had been active on one of their sites. WakeCap immediately delivered to Besix a list of possibly Covid-19 positive workers, the areas where the worker traveled based on their simple contact tracing, and a dashboard that will help Besix identify all possibly infected workers.

“Having a platform like wakecap in our project has provided us with valuable information on the workforce geolocation trends, allowing our teams to take improvement measures on the project logistics, particularly on the optimization of site access, location of welfare facilities, vertical transportation, etc. In the current situation, through WakeCap we can get historical data on worker’s movements if the worker is infected,” says the Project Director, Luis Miguel Monteiro, Besix.
