Why Integrate Mining Contact Tracing
Whether it’s on-site hours or clocking off for the day, bringing multiple contractors, employees, and administrative staff together amidst the COVID-19 crises poses several risks.
Therefore, ramping up the defences against an airborne virus is particularly important to mining and industrial industries- for when remote working is not an option.
Even if you’ve already integrated a robust mobile-app contact tracing tool into your business, mobile contact tracing has its limitations when it comes to tracking airborne viruses on a large scale. The mining industry itself is unpredictable. Physical contact is also inevitable, whether it be sharing industrial work equipment or person-to-person contact. Additionally, individual Australian mining companies have unique health and safety and social distancing regulations. As a result, implementing contactless technologies via a mobile device can be impractical and disruptive.
