Guidelines for COVID-19 Compliance in The Field

As the pandemic spread across the continents, no industry is left unscathed. All companies have changed over the past few months regarding how, when, or where they work. Business owners made difficult decisions to weigh their worker's safety with their companies' survival. Companies are carefully following and implementing health and safety protocols to maintain security and protection from the virus.

But the question is: is it enough to ensure for the employer to implement safety protocols for the team members and lone workers to be safe from the virus infection? With WorkAware safety solutions, you can efficiently manage your lone workers, company equipment, and assets while minimizing the virus's risk and keeping people safe and healthy.

It is extremely beneficial for company leaders and the management to know the different COVID safety measures, especially for workers in the field of construction, gas, oil, energy, etc...
