UK Connect tackles COVID in construction with new test-logging tech 

In UK Connects latest press release, we share the latest enhancement to health & safety SaaS platform,, allows for systematic COVID-19 testing.

Today, in an industry first, construction connectivity specialists, UK Connect, announces a brand-new feature to tackle COVID-19 outbreaks, as part of its powerful site management software, 

The new feature allows construction sites to efficiently handle the collecting, storing and management of worker COVID-19 test results from one central online location. Users are then able to record individual test results, before allowing entry to sites, as well as set parameters on test result expiration and when workers need re-testing. 

By making the process as streamlined as possible through quick and accurate capture  software, site managers can record and track COVID-19 test results for every visitor. This ensures only those with a negative test can enter, reducing risk and preventing complete site shut-downs. 

Working with customers to address industry COVID-19 challenges utilising the innovation of new technologies

UK Connect developed the enhancement by responding to, and working alongside, key customers who needed an answer to potential site closures and disruptions as a result of COVID-19.  

UK Connect, were then able to create a solution for that actively safeguards construction site staff and workers. Now in its final phase of testing, it has plans to roll-out the new feature nationwide from February 2021, to help the nation’s housebuilders operate in a safer, smarter and more efficient way. 

We have directly seen the pandemic’s sizeable impact on output, particularly through man hours lost due to illness or exposure to someone infected with COVID-19. When it was brought to our attention that a site had completely shut-down as a result of a positive test, we took it upon ourselves to work alongside our customers to develop a solution that could add a layer of risk-reduction. With the Government recently announcing access to the Pfizer vaccine, a simple means by which to manage and record those results is crucial.
