Ep. 5 — The StrongArm Data Flex


This is the fifth iteration of Data Flex - for the first, head here.

Each week, StrongArm’s Senior Manager, Data, Aoife, will plumb our considerable data depths and pull out one tasty morsel for you to chew on. (Our data team processes more than 2 millions hours of safety data every month, so there’s a lot to choose from.) 

Throw it out during your next Zoom call and watch coworkers’ eyes widen in disbelief. (You’re welcome.) Better yet, consider it an opportunity to evaluate safety in your own workplace. Can anything be improved there? 

Here’s Aoife:

"What’s so interesting about the proximity data is that we can so clearly see how people move and interact within a space. This has been very apparent in our deployments in school settings. We see clear spikes during class change and lunchtime, when students are moving around within the schools, likely making stops at their lockers or meeting up to chat in the hallways. It’s clearly a bit easier to practice safer social distancing in the classroom (where you see lull periods in the data), but there are still close distance interactions going on, likely when students are working in groups."
