EP&T: Promark collaborates to create social distancing device during pandemic
by Stephen Law, Editor EP&T
The Social Distancer wearable device is designed to provide workers with a means to easily maintain a safe two-meter distance between one another
As workers in manufacturing environments continued to execute their jobs amid COVID-19, actual conditions made it very difficult for them to follow recommended physical distancing standards. These very circumstances held true for two such manufacturers in Quebec – Promark Electronics Inc. and CMP Advanced Mechanical Solutions.
Struggling to assure staff that their work space was safe, Promark president Jarred Knecht collaborated with John Soares and Steve Zimmermann at CMP to design a device that would ensure employees keep a safe distance under social distancing protocols during the pandemic.
