Track and Trace on Site Trial

Mace have recently been working with a company called EMSOL to trial the use of a track and trace bluetooth system. The trial will be used to better monitor social distancing adherance on site as well as providing a way to track and trace individuals on site informing Mace of any confirmed coronavirus cases and who they had come into contact with on site. As this is only a trial only a select few areas of the project will have this operational and only the trades using these areas (Canteen, drying room and walkways) will be tracked.

The system used tracks individuals to within 20cm of one another and records all in real-time, sending alerts to subcontractor supervisors and Mace management if any cases are found, or optionally notifying them who is breaching social distancing regulations. This distance can be programmed to suit site requirements as on our project it is mandatory for everyone to wear face masks.

The trial is due to last one month and will be subject to ongoing reviews as it runs.

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.
