A leading global steel company, ArcelorMittal, has announced the adoption of a VeChain-based technology, My Care, to reduce the risk of the new coronavirus infection.
ArcelorMittal is to test My Care at its headquarter in the MayFair office in Luxembourg to prevent further spread of COVID-19, as well as storing the available infection data on the blockchain securely i.e. without any means of third-party’s interference.
ArcelorMittal is notable among steel companies across the world. It has offices in over 60 countries, with relatively 190,000 employees. The capacity of this company is expected to open VeChain and DNV GL technologies to a broader use.
The steel company decided to take this measure in order to prevent its employees situated across the world from COVID-19 infection, as the infection rate of the highly contagious virus rises worldwide.
DNV GL – Assurance tweeted, “Congratulations to ArcelorMittal‘s UK Mayfair office for achieving a successful readiness assessment against DNV GL’s My Care methodology. My Care builds trust in a company’s ability to manage infection risk.”

The Significance of My Care
VeChain created My Care. It is an application based on the VeChainThor blockchain, in conjunction with DNV GL, for the documentation of the risk of infection from COVID-19. It is also meant to manage and store data in the most secure way.
DNV GL says
“My Care takes a holistic approach to building business resilience. It enables readiness to deal with infectious diseases today and can also drive lasting change in your HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) policies and management systems to create long-term organisational resilience.”
