MACC-19 launching to support safe working practices
Software developer Ctrl Hub is urging organisations to get behind its new free-to-use MACC-19 project that will launch in May, to help business owners manage their Public Health England (PHE) and Construction Leadership Council (CLC) safe site protocols throughout the COVID-19 response.
MACC-19 – which is short for Management and Control of COVID-19 – will aid organisations with the reporting, tracking and management of potential COVID-19 related risks on site.
The cloud-based software will be a scaled-down version of the Ctrl Hub platform that will empower organisations to:
- Enable better social distancing
- Minimise cross-contamination through digitised paperwork
- Be alerted to COVID-19 contamination risks on site
- Understand potential exposures (people/teams/tools/equipment/areas)
- Deliver swift and corrective decontamination measures
The platform provider is GDPR & UK DPA compliant as well as being certified to ISO:27001 and ISO:9001 standards, meaning information will be safe and secure.
There will be no requirement for additional hardware or capital expenditure. The software will be available on any web-enabled PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone (Android and iOS).
Ctrl Hub has already invested £50,000 into the project and received the backing of a wide range of organisations, as well as positive feedback from the company’s clients who use its full version.
Pete Noble, Ctrl Hub’s Sales Director, explained: “We want the software to be available to any company that needs it, completely free of charge.
“There is no commercial opportunity in this for us. We just want to be able to do something to help British businesses (especially in the construction sector) stay safe and we'll be rolling this out to our American clients and making it available in the wider US market too.”
With this time-sensitive product roll-out, the company is looking for support in reaching as many companies as possible that can make use of the software. If you can help to circulate information to your audience, please get in touch with Pete Noble by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07958 055046.
Ctrl Hub is now also accepting expressions of interest from companies that would like to use the software.
“We’re so grateful to all of the organisations and individuals that have supported the project so far”, Pete concluded. “We have the backing of UMi, Constructing Excellence (CENE), Layers Studio, Northumbrian Water Group, Kier, Bowmer & Kirkland, Wilmott Dixon, North East Chamber of Commerce, Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), Association of Bricklaying Contractors (AoBC), the Innovation Supernetwork, Mayor of the Tees Valley Ben Houchen, and Executive Mayor of Middlesbrough Andy Preston.”
