    Shawmut has developed a robust COVID-19 safety plan, created in partnership with trade unions, industry peer groups, and other leading firms, to minimize coronavirus exposure and risk across all jobsites. The firm has rolled out safety protocols, new job-site innovation, and an exhaustive COVID-19 risk assessment and response plan to all project sites across the country, ensuring the safety of all employees and team members.

    Known for its world-class safety program, Shawmut developed a new custom technology platform designed to check for COVID-19 symptoms and manage contact tracing to minimize and control infectious disease spread. Through grassroots innovation, forward-thinking Shawmut team members created the Shawmut Vitals platform, which allows employees and subcontractors to self-certify daily health screenings by scanning a job-specific QR code, then filling out a health survey. If an individual is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has been exposed to someone who is either infected or at-risk, the individual is flagged for further care and action, enabling Shawmut to continue to deliver its people-first approach to construction projects. This software solution, built entirely in-house, is easily integrated into existing Shawmut systems, allowing team members to access information on their mobile devices at a much faster rate.
