Controlling the Spread of COVID-19 to Visitors on Construction Sites

Josh Rickel JobSiteCheck

Construction sites have many moving parts and a steady stream of activity. With the rise in COVID-19 cases, supervisors are struggling to find a contractor management software or onsite check in solution to safely screen on site visitors to each construction site. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, construction workers in 31 states were declared as essential workers, putting them at increased risk for infection. According to Austin Public Health, construction sites in Texas joined health care, grocery stores, and other industries that were hit the hardest by the spread of COVID-19.

With the constant flow of employees, vendors, contractors, and suppliers, this may come as no surprise. Construction sites contain access points, areas of congregation, and work zones where social distancing is difficult to maintain. Most contractor management software solutions and visitor management systems fail to control the screening of unpaid staff. 

JobSiteCheck is a contactless software solution to help reduce exposure to all potential worksite visitors. The utilization of QR codes eliminates the requirement for all site visitors to download a visitor management application. Instead, all visitors can simply use their personal smartphone camera, capture a QR code posted at entry points, and use a browser-based questionnaire that assesses their exposure to the virus. Based on the individual’s submission, they are either granted or denied access to the jobsite.

In addition to reducing physical interactions, JobSiteCheck provides supervisors a robust process that helps better manage their jobsite. Using an admin dashboard, the project management team can attain an accurate number of people on the jobsite to determine compliance with social distancing and density regulations. They can also mitigate contagion among visitors by monitoring how many people have passed or failed the entry questionnaire.

Whereas other contractor management software solutions or visitor management systems require a paid subscription for every user, Job Site Check is based on each job site covered under the user’s account. This efficient, but robust, construction check in app allows supervisors to reduce potential transmission hot spots and stem the spread of COVID-19. 

JobSiteCheck is an effective tool that contributes to the ultimate goal of keeping everyone safe and healthy. Along with reducing contamination, Job Site Check makes it easy for construction sites to stay in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines.
