Cooneen: SureTraceID Enterprise Social Distancing and Contact Tracing

VisionID supplied Cooneen Group with a digital wearable solution that ensures Social Distancing in the workplace through an audible or vibrating alert and enables automated Contact Tracing.


The Challenge Cooneen Group Faced:

When the Covid-19 pandemic began, Cooneen Group were deemed an essential service and so had to introduce safety measures across the plant to keep employees safe and reduce transmission. Manual contact tracing was being carried out but relying on each individual to remember who they may or may not have encountered even whilst wearing PPE would have been challenging, and in the event of a positive Covid-19 case the safest thing to do would have been to send everyone in the plant home.

The Solution:

SureTraceID from VisionID enables automated Contact Tracing which meets government requirements and minimises disruption to the workplace in the event an employee shows symptoms.

Each employee wears a wristband or lanyard that will alert wearers if they are failing to observe the pre-determined social distancing rules.

All violations will be recorded on a secure network, which can be accessed in the event of an infectious breakout to enable fast and effective historical contact tracing.

“We learned pretty quickly that this solution was going to be a fit for us, we experienced some minor issue but VisionID’s support team were able to sort these, and we have experienced no issues since” Neville McIlwrath.

The Result:

“The solution was well received by our employees, they felt safe and that was really important to us.”

Cooneen have been able to continue production safely throughout the pandemic, but SureTraceID has made this much easier and more reliable.
