“The construction and design industries realized early on that the health and safety of workers is the foundation of any economic recovery. Focusing on the 3Ts (testing, tracking, tracing) will allow Canada to stop reacting and start managing COVID-19,” said Perruzza said in an Aug. 7 press release. “These actions have kept construction workers safe and the industry, as a whole, is at the forefront of our economic recovery.”
Those sentiments were echoed by Sean Erjavec, chief revenue officer at Bridgit.
“In the last 5 years, the construction industry has undergone a technological shift – both in regards to smartphones and wearables. We’ve seen this accelerate even more during the last few months, with contractors wanting to track COVID-19’s impact both from a project and people tracking perspective. Understanding that several job sites do not allow smartphones for safety reasons, having a wearable variation of the tracking app is an excellent option,” Erjavec told IT Business Canada.
