Measure Social Distancing in the Workplace Environment

Measuring Social Distancing in the workplace is the name of the game. Especially now that the lockdown phase of COVID-19 is coming to an end, and we are starting to plan for the coming back to the office.

Many governments are establishing guidelines to enable companies to open their offices. One of the most important concepts is social distancing.

Introducing the Social Distancing Card

Basking has introduced a feature to measure social distancing at the workplace via the social distancing card. It allows us to provide portfolio-wide social distancing metrics at building, floor, and floor area levels.

Measuring Social Distancing at the workplace with Basking's WiFi and AI based occupancy analytics platform

In this Social Distancing card, our users can quickly understand what happened in the building at peak and understand what does it mean compared to the directives of WHO, MIT, and optionally the company’s directives. 

Automating Compliance

Probably a big portion of your employees is looking forward to coming back to work. Yet they also want to feel safe. As an office manager, you are responsible for creating and maintaining that safe environment. 

Our recommendation is to follow a focusing approach, starting by measuring the average social distancing at building, floor, and floor area levels. Similar to the rules adopted by supermarkets during the COVID-19 phase, this will give you a solid foundation where to focus if things get dense at some spots of your portfolio. This can be done with our Workplace Occupancy Compliance Dashboard.

Deploy During COVID-19 Times

Because our solution requires no Hardware, Basking can be implemented immediately and entirely remotely. If you want to learn more about it, this article explains how our WiFi occupancy analytics platform works

Additionally, we have a special offering to support your transition to the new normal. We are offering the application free of charge until the work-from-home policies are lifted as an add on to our three months or yearly subscriptions.
