Detroit’s Andonix has launched Safely Pass, a free application designed to maintain business continuity and supply chain operations while protecting employees. It detects, monitors, and prevents contagion in the workplace by automating company access processes, aiding in the implementation of social distancing requirements. It also offers virtual collaboration options.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, social distancing guidelines have posed challenges to employers and their workers, including manufacturing and supply chain environments. Andonix does not have access to information companies store on the app.
“With Safely Pass, employers can implement best practices for workplace safety, whether it’s automating building entry processes or empowering workers to adhere to social distancing guidelines,” says David Yanez, CEO of Andonix.
Real-time digital records enable Safely Pass to automate wellness detection and monitoring by assessing employees, visitors, and contractors at entry points. It eliminates the need for pen and paper logs that many people fill out that may carry harmful germs.
Individuals can use their own mobile devices to submit wellness forms. Once a wellness form is submitted, a company health monitor can remotely grant clearance.
Using location services, the app also generates heat maps of access points, workspaces, cafeterias, and restrooms to monitor crowd levels, helping employees maintain social distancing regulations.
Businesses that are piloting Safely Pass or have signed up to use it upon reopening include Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, American Axle and Manufacturing, Master Electronics, Dana Inc., SMTC Corp., Kiekert de México, Willscot Corp., and Gestamp.
Safely Pass users also will have the ability to purchase three-ply facemasks from Andonix at wholesale prices. In response to shortages and price gouging, the company secured a space to produce personal protective equipment for front line workers and plans to begin selling facemasks online beginning May 15.
Andonix’s flagship solution is Smart Work Station, which offers workers a digital work flow along with a collaboration and communications platform. In addition to its Detroit headquarters, the company has locations in Mexico City, Sao Paulo, and Munich. To learn more about Safely Pass, click here.
