Who’s on the Jobsite? New Advances in Access Control and Site Safety

On Demand Until April 21, 2022

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Requirements for social distancing and limiting headcount on jobsites working through the COVID-19 pandemic have changed the way many sites are organized. Check-ins that used to be noted on a clipboard are now being recorded in phone apps and wearable location-tracking tags. Contractors adopted these strategies in 2020 to keep their sites open, but are now finding they can plan more effectively with much more accurate headcounts.

During this webinar, we will hear from contractors, technology innovators and other experts on the benefits this shift in site access tracking can bring.

The content of this webinar is produced and directed by ENR's editorial team.
