Local development company Post Brothers Apartments is teaming up with tech firm VITA to keep its employees safe in case of an emergency.
VITA, known for its VITABand that stores medical information and can also act as a cashless payment system, has developed its platform to link employees’ hard hats and ID cards to self-created medical profiles, according to a release. That way, if an accident happens on the job, responders immediately have access to the employees’ information. Post Brothers will be the first to use the new technology.
Post Brothers has been in the news this year because of its messy battle with the unions, which ended in September after U.S. Rep. Bob Brady brokered a deal between the two parties.-30-
