Social Distancing and Contact Tracing for Industry Facilities
As plants and manufacturing facilities work to return to full capacity with the new challenges created by the pandemic, operation managers and health and safety officials must keep employees safe while also optimizing production. Guidelines from governments and health experts recommend social distancing to minimize risk to employee health. Without a location tracking system, it is difficult to know if employees can adhere to these guidelines and to identify hidden trouble areas in a facility.
The SieTrace application, together with the SIMATIC Real Time Locating System (RTLS), can help plant managers and operation managers optimize facility layouts and protect employee health reliably and efficiently. By monitoring customer defined unsafe interactions, SieTrace can help minimize virus transmission and provide vital contact tracing with a recorded history of employee interactions.
