Morson introduces coronavirus tracking app for its contractors

Morson Group has developed a contact tracing app to detect coronavirus, which it has now rolled out to its 3,000 contractors across the UK.

According to a statement released this week by the global recruitment specialist, the ‘Fit For Work’ app is an early intervention technology which identifies whether its contractors are experiencing symptoms of the virus before they attend client worksites, ensuring they are not exposed to those who are deemed high risk. 

The app uses facial recognition technology to validate a worker's identity, then takes a time, date and location stamp. It then asks questions relating to coronavirus and its typical symptoms before issuing an immediate notification to supervisors, who then advise whether the worker can safely progress to site or if they should move into isolation.

If a worker is told to isolate, the data can then be used to track which sites they have attended and who else has been in their vicinity. Anyone found to have worked with an individual who later displays symptoms of the coronavirus is told and advised on what they should do next.
