Construction workers are being offered wearable mood monitors so companies can stay in tune with how staff are feeling, as sites ramp up production post lockdown.

 

Framework organisation Pagabo has joined forces with technology brand Moodbeam One to provide wristbands that allow workers to record their daily moods at the press of a button, as concerns rise for the mental health and wellbeing of construction workers in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

As reported by Construction Enquirer, Moodbeam One devices aim to promote worker wellbeing by tracking whether they are having a good or bad day at work, in real time. The bands have already been tested at Morgan Sindall and Willmott Dixon sites prior to the pandemic and will now be available to a wider cross section of the industry including on-site project teams, off-site manufacturing teams, remote working teams and sub contractors.

The wristbands record mood discreetly and anonymously, creating data that can be used to highlight any challenges and stress points on site, as well as capturing positive mood trends.

Simon Toplass, chief executive at Pagabo said: “There are so many things that can affect whether workers will have a good or bad day – from weather factors to deadlines, long periods of remote working to unsocial shift patterns – so the Moodbeam One allows a really simple way for people to feedback.”
