EBI integrates SafeZone into its contact tracing solution to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace

Employment Background Investigations Inc. (EBI), one of the nation's largest privately-held employee background screening firms, is adding KINEXON SafeZone to its Workplace Health and Safety solution for distance monitoring and contact tracing.

The end-to-end system developed by EBI partner KINEXON is designed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.

"Maintaining physical distance is one of the most important things we can do to avoid COVID-19 and other infectious diseases," said RJ Frasca, vice president of product and marketing, EBI Inc. "The KINEXON SafeZone distance monitoring and contact tracing component helps companies ensure compliance with social distancing, which makes employees feel more confident in returning to work as there is a true effort being taken to keep people safe."

Within the new distance monitoring system, employees wear a KINEXON SafeTag, an extremely lightweight sensor (15 grams), that uses ultra-wideband technology to pinpoint their proximity to one another.

The device sends an alert when the employee is too close to another person and sends all data to the company's command center. The technology also allows for accurate and efficient contact tracing.

If someone falls ill, the contact tracing functionality allows a company to quickly identify and notify co-workers who were close enough to be potentially exposed.

Through a mobile app, EBI Workplace Health and Safety sends out notifications, as well as information regarding testing or quarantining, all while protecting the affected employee's identity. The entire process is automated and immediately allows for tracing of possible chains of infection.
