Like many other industries, construction is starting to turn to RFID to monitor assets and increase efficiency. Some contractors are using the technology to create automated inventory systems for hand tools, while others are using it monitor the location of large equipment like excavators and forklifts. Some companies, however, are finding the real efficiency gains can come from monitoring their most valuable assets—their workers. Two construction companies in Texas, for example, just installed an RFID workforce monitor service that keeps tabs on workers as they enter and exit the jobsite. Holder Construction from Dallas, Texas, installed an RFID system at construction site in San Antonio, and WS Bellows Construction, www.wsbellows.com, Houston, Texas, installed the same solution at a site in Houston.
