Recently, Hatch—working through its investment arm Canadian Shield Capital—invested in Cambridge Brain Sciences (CBS) to accelerate a technology that will help us understand the cognitive function and employee fitness for duty, particularly before the start of a workday.
The financing will allow Cambridge Brain Sciences to delve into and further apply their technology to the digital health trend, placing particular emphasis on mental health, which has been exacerbated by the recent global pandemic. Our collaboration is building on a pilot program aimed at addressing workplace mental health and safety both in the office and at project sites. The program, still in its early stages, endeavors to prioritize safety through data capture and assessment. James Marzocca, Global Managing Director, Project Delivery at Hatch, remarked, “Mental health and safety are central themes for Hatch, for our clients, and our people. We see great potential to apply CBS testing as a non-invasive diagnostic to assess fitness for duty for individuals reporting to worksites where mental alertness is essential for their own safety and the safety of others.”
