Wristbands track workers’ mood
Construction site workers will be given wristbands which allow them to record their daily moods.
Framework provider Pagabo introduced the bands in a trial with construction firms Morgan Sindall, and Willmott Dixon before the coronavirus crisis. The initiative is now being extended to wider industry.
Simon Toplass, chief executive at Pagabo, said to Construction Enquirer: “The industry is starting to talk about the pressure that is felt by its workforce, and this pioneering initiative starts to provide a way of staying in tune with how staff are feeling.”
He added that the data gathered by the devices is completely anonymous and will be used to highlight any challenges and stress points on site.
