COVID-19 can be spread through person-to-person contact, so as we assess potential measures to keep our teams safe in the work environment, we need to ensure that we support them with implementing safe working practices. This includes keeping a distance of 2 metres between each other. We understand that it’s not always easy for people to adapt their usual behaviours so our Pathfindr team have been working hard to rapidly develop the Safe Distancing Assistant.
The Safe Distancing Assistant is a simple, small, and low-cost device that alerts wearers whenever they come within 2 metres of a colleague also wearing the device.
The devices emit an audible alarm with optional vibration and are automatically activated as soon as they are worn by the user, so you don’t have to remember to turn it on or off. The devices are rechargeable with a battery life of 4-5 days of continuous use. They can be worn using a simple lanyard or by using the clip to attach to a belt or other clothing.
It can be used in any essential workplace including pharmaceutical, manufacturing and logistics sectors. Risk assessments are by their very nature complex and, with the added requirement for social distancing, we know that companies will face challenges in ensuring compliance, even with robust processes in place. Our aim is to help customers safely continue their operations whilst protecting their workforce and providing peace of mind to your staff when it comes to their own safety.
