Frazier-Simplex is to use a COVID Toolkit from Vigilant Technologies (VIT) for all future construction project job sites to help eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses before they happen.

FSI is working to provide all future furnace construction job sites and glass industry customers with automated daily COVID screening of employees entering a job site.

These self-serve kiosks and wearable devices make automated tracking of leading indicators and social distancing compliance simple for construction projects and businesses looking to fully re-open.

VIT’s technology utilises machine learning and thermal cameras to detect elevated temperature.

"We're excited to work with Frazier-Simplex to continue to keep its workplace safe during these uncertain times,” said Andy Chan of The VIT Initiative.

“They're a forward thinking organisation that cares about their employees so it's a great opportunity for us to roll out our VIT Covid toolkit to prevent illnesses and injuries before they happen.”

This solution screens for temperature and symptoms and automatically records everyone's information into the cloud for safe and secure storage.

It only takes employees seconds to check into the system each day as they arrive for work, be screened and all the time-stamped information is then available for review.

“This will create peace of mind for both contractors and employees at a job site, which is why we’re so excited to help the glass industry re-open safely,” said John Frazier of FSI.

“VIT’s technology is a game changer in this unusual time.”
