Honeywell releases digitized workforce management solutions for safe return-to-work
July 15, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Honeywell has released a modular software solution to help industrial companies enforce compliance with key health and safety requirements as their employees return to the workplace, including body temperature checks and automated entry management processes.
The solution facilitates site monitoring compliance in accordance with social distancing policies and enables contact tracing and monitoring of worker safety. It also includes remote collaboration capabilities to empower company operations with a reduced workforce.
As part of a broader plant and personnel safety portfolio, Honeywell Digitized Workforce Management – Business Continuity and Response solution combines software and hardware technology to support return to work and transition to operations.
The system can support Honeywell thermal cameras that can be used with systems compliant with NDAA 2019, Section 889 to check for elevated body temperatures and provide input to the access control system.
This can enable operators to restrict entryway access if an elevated temperature is detected, helping to automate the preliminary screening process and reducing manual tasks.
Digitizing the entryway approval workflow for visitors and returning employees and contractors enables organizations to onboard the workforce efficiently, leveraging workforce management and access control into a new layer of protection.
