As Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, it’s becoming clear that how we work and interact with others is going to change. Whether it’s a complete travel ban to entire nations or banning nonessential travel, large companies such as Amazon and Microsoft are taking measures to ensure people are healthy and safe. Major airlines are reducing flights both domestically and internationally, and conferences are either being canceled or becoming digital-only events. More and more companies are also asking employees to work remotely and promoting social distancing. The trend won’t be ending soon, either; officials warn that it could take months before lives return to normal.
Despite all of this, construction job sites have remained unaffected by the outbreak and the industry continues to grow as expected. According to the chapter’s safety director, no members of the Associated General Contractors of Washington have stopped working at the time of writing, even in Seattle (one of the outbreak epicenters in the US). Combined with travel bans and remote working, this creates a problem for managers of national construction programs who need to confirm project milestones in-person. Construction cameras can ease the process along through remote job site monitoring and provide real-time visual construction data.
