Cognizant Safe Buildings uses instrumentation, analytics and insights to proactively monitor your buildings and provide real-time alerts of deviations to health and safety protocols, based on layered critical safety controls.
Your first lines of defense against contagion are touchless thermal temperature scans and simple screening protocols. Data provides access and visibility into potential risks at a "point in time" and offers remediation protocols for re-entry into facilities. You can connect "track and trace" programs to monitor employees who have come into contact with potentially infected individuals, which minimizes further risk and disruption.
Contact Tracing tracks health and visited places in a safe and private manner, by collecting data from individuals who are infected or potentially exposed to an infectious disease and creating visual maps of contacts and locations to monitor potential interactions and outbreak.
Physical Distance Tracking helps enforce safe proximity protocols. With smartphones and wearable tech, employees can easily provide two-way communication that helps maintain physical distancing standards and receive alerts when deviations occur. Contact tracing capabilities can be integrated to send alerts of potential health threats.
Physical Distance Effectiveness combines sensors, smart wristbands and people-density algorithms to identify physical distancing bottlenecks and areas of potential overcrowding. The system can then help redistribute people to alternate zones and less crowded areas.
Air Quality Tracking provides real-time monitoring of a building’s air quality to help prevent the spread of pathogens through HVAC systems. Automated alerts trigger maintenance to efficiently maintain elevated air quality standards.
Hand Hygiene Tracking for Employers uses smart wearables and motion detection to raise employee confidence in good hand hygiene practices by reminding, recording and rewarding compliance.
Health and Safety Visualization provides senior management- and facility-level visibility into a building’s contagion exposure risks, compliance and mitigation. Centralized dashboards analyze granular data into deviation trends using configurable key performance indicators, benchmarking and time series visualizations.
