Construction work continues to be considered an essential business throughout most of the United States despite the Coronavirus pandemic. Ensuring worker safety is at an all-time high as managers emphasize the importance of following proper health procedures and social distancing practices while on the job site. A number of construction apps have updated their programs or created new ones that will help site managers implement these safety procedures.
Here are four companies that are making a difference in construction worker safety through technology according to Construction Dive:
Israel-based construction tech company Genda Tech had begun to expand to the United States prior to the virus, said Erez Dror, CEO and co-founder.
