Contact Tracing Board

Contact tracing and the ability to identify close working contacts while at work has become an area with increased focus during the coronavirus pandemic.

It had been identified that as humans we find it difficult to remember information such as who you worked with on particular days along with where you worked and what the works consisted of.

The project team drafted up a board that allows them to track who operatives are working with where a task require operatives to be within 2 meters of each other.

The board is populated on a daily basis at the morning briefing and this board is then recorded by photograph.

If in the event that there has been a confirmed case identified on site, information is easily obtainable, identifying the person in close contact with others on site over that past number of days and if so who were these persons.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
