New tech solutions to help your business manage Covid-19 H&S

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to impact businesses of all shapes and sizes around the country and beyond, companies have been forced to look at new ways of running their day-to-day business operations in line with Covid-19 restrictions.

And, this has resulted in many businesses turning to technology solutions to help manage teams from home, keep production moving forward, manage the outbreak of the virus and ensure that communication and engagement is always a top priority.

In response to a demand for new tech solutions to help manage the crisis, there are now a whole host of innovative services and platforms being made available, which can be utilised to continue to drive your business forward during these difficult times.

We’ve rounded up some of the best new tech solutions that have been designed to help your business to manage Covid-19 health and safety.

Wearable devices

With the Government advising businesses to implement effective social distancing in all areas of the workplace, tech companies are looking at new ways to make the working environments safer in order to successfully manage the transmission risk.

This includes a company called Tharsus, who has invented Bump  – a Fitbit-style personal motion system that has been designed to be a “simple, intuitive and friendly” way of improving workplace safety.

Worn around an employee’s neck, this innovative device communicates with other Bump devices using low energy Bluetooth and ultra-wideband radio frequencies in order to let people know if they are too close to another person.

Virtual training and videos

As the Government continue to encourage businesses to work from home and limit non-essential interaction, more businesses than ever before are reaping the many benefits of virtual training and videos.

Companies such as Tribuco have built innovative training and video platforms that have been designed to facilitate thinking and problem solving, meet the needs of visual learners and assist in all types of learning. Of course, one of the main advantages of virtual learning platforms is the fact that they are accessible, from anywhere, any time, making them ideal for remote learning and interaction.

When it comes to health and safety, these tools can be used to ensure that your employees are all up to date with the latest regulations and rules, without the need for face to face contact.

Smart Tech

With public safety now a priority in all aspects of everyday life, there is an increasing amount of technology that has been designed to help protect the public during the pandemic including the Smart Helmet.

Currently being repurposed to detect virus symptoms in wealth of different public spaces, the helmet is already being successfully used in Dubai to detect those with a high temperature.

As the virus continues to wreak havoc across our economic landscape, it is expected that technology like this is expected to become a normal part of our everyday lives.
