JESI launches COVID-safe commute plan for miners
Queensland-based remote worker management company JESI has joined forces with Microsoft Australia and Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) Ignited to introduce a COVID-safe commute plan for the resources sector.
JESI has developed a platform that allows fly-in-fly-out (FIFO), drive-in-drive-out (DIDO) and other remote workers to digitally log their journeys to and from any geographic location.
The platform will soon be integrated with Microsoft Teams to allow users to remain within Teams when interacting with JESI.
The platform can also incorporate data from travel itineraries and in-vehicle monitoring systems, and to provide real-time data to Queensland Health of any potential at risk travellers as required.
“JESI prides itself on providing near real-time journey management solutions for the resources sector to manage their remote and isolated workforce,” JESI CEO and co-founder Joe Hoolahan said.
“We are excited about this opportunity to extend our offerings to the broader resources sector. COVID demands safe, real-time notified working environments and worker movements, and the JESI suite of services is particularly appropriate.”
He said the partnership with METS and Microsoft demonstrates what can be achieved when aligned parties collaborate to tackle industry and broader community challenges.
The Queensland Resources Council has welcomed the initiative as an opportunity for companies to quickly locate regional and remote workers in the event of a COVID outbreak.
