We are starting a Proof of concept of implementing IOT technology in one of our construction site to measure the labor Performance kPIs and health & safety, anyone has thought on this? I will share our findings once completed.

IoT What exactly is your doubt? What kind of data will be collected? I have worked with IIoT for 22 years, depending of what part of the problem you need an opinion (data collection, data transport, storing) I'd be happy to talk to you.

Thanks We are testing Bluetooth Low Energy, I have several concerns on this POC: -Coverage: The construction sites are usually huge vertically (towers) or horizontally (Resorts, villas..) -Efficiency -Operational problem -Security of data (Idd) -Consent of labor who will wear these IOT helmet -Cost benefit analysis on big scale projects

I suggest first evaluate available IOT technologies to cover your required areas, construction sites, entry/exit points for labour etc., then prepare data details you need to capture and defining KPIs, hopefully this will help you to build business case. Data security and consent of labour are petty issues!

My thoughts on; "We are starting a Proof of concept of implementing IOT technology in one of our construction sites to measure the labor Performance KPIs and health & safety, anyone has thoughts on this?

You may opt for either bluetooth exenders or wifi. The major factor would be the cost. Security can be improved significantly by using any standard encryption technology (TLS 1.2 etc.) and will be the part of software stack you are using to guage labor performance. Consent of labor should be taken and can be made part of contract signing.
