Importance of Automotive Contact Tracing
The importance of having sustainable visitor management for automotive industries is necessary to prevent operational delays, mitigate the possibility of the complete shutdown of business operations and promote the health and safety of all onsite contractors and visitors against the spread of airborne viruses. The reality is, maintaining the 1.5-metre social distancing rule between contractors to consistently monitor check-ins of all employees and visitors is no easy feat.
The physical nature of the automotive and production industries, whether it be car repairs, vehicle maintenance and restoration or vehicle selling, poses a variety of challenges. All those involved in repairing or maintaining vehicles to regularly sustain business productivity will, at some point in the day, come into close contact with another contractor, an office administrator, a customer or all three.
Close contacts and the frequent handling of tools and equipment make the possibility of spreading COVID-19 inevitable. Video calls between contractors and visitors are too impractical to ensure top-tier customer service, plexiglass screens, and enforcing one-way lanes and stationary work stations within an automotive industry environment is also impossible, as these solutions can significantly slow worker productivity and affect deadlines.
