COVID-19: The Catalyst to Permanently Transform Construction Safety With Live Field Data

September 21, 2020
Mike Merrill - Construction Executive

Construction is considered an essential service, which is why many projects have continued to hum along even as large portions of the economy have shut down. And while some projects may slow or experience delays from budgetary constraints, experts forecast that the construction industry could soon be busier than ever. Still, amidst the uncertainty of COVID-19 is a silver lining: construction companies now have the opportunity to examine safety processes and update their technology and operations in ways that will positively affect their businesses for years to come.

The 2020 FMI Industry Report shows 66% of firms believe that maintaining a safe worksite is the number one concern for their future success. Now, since the advent of COVID-19, safety managers must do everything they can to protect their workforces, which is where technology comes in.
