Room Occupancy Monitoring

What is it?

The Room Occupancy Monitoring system counts how many people enter the room through the ‘in’ door and how many people exit through the ‘out’ door. The system keeps track of the room occupancy level against the set room capacity. The system has a display at the entrance to the room showing level of occupancy in the room against the capacity. The display turns red when the room is full capacity.

Why we used it

We needed to make sure no room was over capacity for it to be coronavirus safe, using security guards on each door counting people in and out would allow for human error and be inefficient and we needed a clear sign to tell people when it is not safe to enter a room.

Was it Successful?

The use of the Control System was added into the induction to make sure operatives know how the system works and how to read the displays. Cleaners have been trained to reset any anomalies on the counters to make sure the reading is always accurate. An additional screen is installed on the way into the welfare which means you can see the room capacities before you approach them.  Before the system was turned on all operatives were walked through it to ensure success.

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.
