SAFELINQ LEADS THE WAY BACK TO WORK FOR UK OFFICES

SAFELINQ LEADS THE WAY BACK TO WORK FOR UK OFFICES

Safelinq, an Oxon-based technology company, has launched a workplace safety service for UK businesses to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19.

The company’s wearable social distancing tags and anchors can be used within any workspace to help employees and visitors manage the UK’s current two-metre social distancing rule. The product’s Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology is accurate to within 10cm.

Safelinq has two potential solutions:

Option one (Alert and Trace): A limited number of anchors are installed and connected to a local gateway via a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch and Ethernet connectors. The tags are worn by any employee, visitor or contractor in the building. When two or more tags come within two metres of each other, they begin to vibrate, alerting the user when social distancing has been breached. The technology can also offload the information to inform the user how long the breach was for and with whom the breach occurred with. 

Option two (Alert, Trace and Position): As the more advanced option, a floor plan or site visit is required to establish the number and location of anchors needed to cover the area. On top of the alert and trace features in option one, once the network of anchors are connected, live positioning becomes available via Safelinq’s cloud platform or customer application. With this option full location traceability and heat maps are available, showing utilisation of the workspace and movement/interaction of employees. 

The company is keen to stress the value of the product in a post-COVID workplace. The solutions can provide businesses with valuable insights into how their current workspace is being utilised; improve security by sounding an alert if an employee, visitor or contractor is in an area they are not authorised to  be in; and, provide real-time monitoring of the location of equipment and goods with the help of tags.
