As Covid-19 lockdown eases, organisations need to ensure the safety and wellbeing of staff and clients by minimising risk of exposure to the virus.
Employers owe a duty of care to staff in order to assure them of a safe working environment. Safeguards will be both advised and mandated by the Government. Implementing these and returning to some semblance of “normal” will require operational changes combined with expedited process and technological delivery. A high fever is the most prominent symptom of Covid-19.
Temperature capture for identifying likelihood of individuals carrying the virus, combined with a robust and verifiable follow-up process provides an effective, non-invasive and efficient return to work protocol that needs to be implemented quickly by all businesses.
New technology is available to assist in minimising the risk, through automation and reducing human interaction which could potentially save lives. Working with O2 we will enable you to swiftly implement a thermal scanning solution across all of your facilities, providing a non-invasive read of body temperatures of those arriving on-site, quickly highlighting those with a potential fever while allowing others to pass through easily.
Thermal imaging cameras can be used in any environment, however, they are particularly beneficial in those with high footfall and where speed is a contributing factor, such as airports, healthcare, transport and public spaces.
