BHP will shortly commence field trials of a coronavirus contact-tracing app that has been developed in-house. BHP will initially trial the app at its mines in Chile, although the app may be rolled out across its global operations. BHP has stressed that employees and contractors can choose not to use the app, and it says data gathered by the app will only be accessed by the company’s health and safety officers. BHP is also encouraging its Australian employees to download the federal government’s COVIDSafe app.
