Social Distancing Scanning Software

This project has used Disperse’s building productivity management platform to help address coronavirus related challenges on site.

They have used the software as a monitoring device and it has helped them recover up to ten weeks on the programme, return to 70% capacity in six weeks and with no reported outbreaks of coronavirus.

The Disperse Social Distancing scan takes several photos in areas of concern on the site. The system recognises people in this scan and measures all distances between them, providing the team and the trades with a compliance score at every scan location. The score is then used to their benefit with regards to site set up and marshal locations on-site and ensuring the one-way system is followed.

Using these reports, the team can make decisions about the number of operatives working in a specific area, whether or not to allow additional people on site, and if site personnel is adhering to the social distancing rules at ‘pinch-point’ locations such as the site entrance.

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.
