Three months since banding together to promote and share work-site safety best practices, the NEXT Coalition -- an industry collaboration among leading critical infrastructure and construction companies – has chosen five pilot projects meant to protect crews against challenges posed by COVID-19.
The pilot projects – chosen from 84 applications and products from 78 companies and startups who responded to a call for coronavirus solutions – include wearable technology for contact tracing and social distancing, digital pre-screening of workers, and smart video monitoring for health and safety. Selected projects developed and submitted by Kwant.ai, GoContractor, Newmetrix (formerly Smartvid.io), Opal and Versatile, represent only a portion of those submitted to date as part of the coalition’s “Construction Safety Challenge.” Fifty-eight other potential products are being vetted by the coalition, and additional submissions are being welcomed.
