by Brianna Crandall — September 24, 2021 — Software innovator Safe Site Check In recently announced that its private, QR-code digital check-in app now provides workers and event guests with the ability to securely and privately provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination. The technology is currently utilized by businesses throughout North America for safety, project and staff management, capacity planning, compliance, health screenings and contact tracing.
Safe Site Check In’s customizable digital check-in and screening solution is used by architecture, engineering, construction (AEC) and design firms, event venues, schools and commercial offices to verify identity and time of arrival of employees, subcontractors and visitors. Upon arrival, people use their smartphone to scan a private QR code and check in.
Based on the employer’s or host’s requirements, the employee or visitor is shown one or more questions on their smartphone screen. These questions can address vaccination status, give workers an assignment, or direct visitors and guests to a specific location. The check-in information eliminates sign-in sheets and replaces them with a streamlined, safer way to know who is or was on site.
Now, an employer or event organizer can use Safe Site Check In to privately and securely upload a picture of their CDC-issued vaccination card with dates of inoculation. Employers and event organizers do not have access to personal health information or any other data on the employee’s or visitor’s smartphone.
The Safe Site Check In app is not used for persistent tracking of users’ location information, nor to assist with tracking users for public health monitoring. Rather, it is used for private contact tracing or as proof of an employer meeting local or federal guidelines for ensuring vaccination of everybody on site.
David Ward, CEO, Safe Site Check In, remarked:
As COVID-19 variants gain strength and employers and large event venues require proof of vaccination, consumers are rightfully concerned about the privacy of their data. With Safe Site Check In, employers and hosts can quickly set up a safe and private way for people to check in and provide proof of vaccination without compromising the privacy of employees and patrons. We remain committed to protecting the privacy and integrity of our customers’ data.
Safe Site Check In also offers subscribers the flexibility to input custom questions upon entry to or exit from a site. For employers, this can include showing training videos before the start of a shift for compliance requirements. For marketers, this can include event evaluations upon check-out.
If an employee or visitor tests positive for COVID-19, Safe Site Check In can provide a report that includes those who were in potential contact with the infected person. The private business contact tracing report is based on timing and proximity to exposure. The employer or event host can use the report in accordance with local health protocols.
