ITS (UK) Member says tags “would have prevented site closure”
ITS (UK) Micro-SME member Neil Levett, who’s introducing an electronic tag solution to ensure social distancing at work, says the closure of a Highways England depot last week could have been avoided if his system had been implemented.
The facility on the A14 near Cambridge was shut after one member of staff exhibited Coronavirus symptoms.
Mr Levett, who owns keep2m.co.uk said, “This is exactly what the wearable tags, with full reporting facilities, are designed to stop happening. Had the person who fell ill been wearing one of our tags with its unique QR Code, we could have identified who they had had close contact with and only isolated these people.
“If you are wondering if you can afford a system, seriously, just ask yourself if you can afford another enforced 2 week shutdown because you aren’t able to identify who somebody with symptoms has come into to contact with.”
