Azure IoT for safer workplaces

Create a safer workplace as you resume onsite operations.

Help safeguard your employees, customers, and facility

Deliver on your commitment to worker safety using Internet of Things (IoT) solutions designed for rapid deployment at global scale. Implement contactless systems to prepare your facility for reopening in light of COVID-19, maintain employee safety by monitoring sanitization and hygiene practices, track adherence to mask-wearing guidelines, and optimize your workplace to maintain appropriate distance between team members. Empower your employees to collaborate from anywhere.

As your workplace and other group spaces reopen after the COVID-19 shutdown, it’s important to instill confidence in your employees and customers that you’re keeping your facilities clean. IoT solutions built on Azure by our partners apply disinfectant to spaces and assets to promote health and well-being.
