As a number of states begin lifting lockdown restrictions, many organizations are contemplating new and innovative ways to open their offices in a safe manner. Companies have been scrambling to create workplace environments that ensure continuous employee safety and the necessary social distancing requirements. To execute on this successfully, entities are employing an array of IoT technologies to build work environments that reduce human touch points in order to mitigate the likelihood of an outbreak among personnel. The article that follows does an excellent job of describing how some organizations are putting the IoT to work in this regard
A new wave of tools and technologies are being introduced to help companies, building managers, and other facilities better comply with social distancing, capacity, and cleanliness regulations.
After several months of working from home or being furloughed, many workers are returning to their workplaces. Also, some students are going back to classrooms, and libraries are beginning to open again.
Not only do organizations need to ensure that people can go to their facilities and keep the required social distance, they also need to manage the use of their space, rooms, offices, classrooms, etc., to perform the necessary cleaning and disinfection procedures between uses.
A combination of different IoT technologies could manage all those requirements. Choosing the right wireless network is paramount to optimize resources and reduce maintenance costs.
