How to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission as we emerge from lockdown.
As the Prime Minister announces new plans to ease the lockdown restrictions and get the nation back to work, there has never been a more important time to consider the ongoing risk of COVID-19 transmission. And more importantly, what you need to do to mitigate that risk and protect yourself and your fellow employees.
It seems like a lifetime ago that Heathrow Airport started installing temperature sensors and moving towards contactless security checks, but that is the new reality now. A new but established reality. As a nation, we obviously need to protect our
borders to stop a re-emergence of the epidemic that we have all sacrificed so much to help stamp out. So, is that principle really any different for your company premises? Full contactless security checks might be a bit overkill for your business – maybe not – but contactless temperature scanning most certainly is not. In fact, it’s the only way to remotely detect whether a visitor to your place of work is displaying key symptoms of COVID-19. You owe it to yourself, your team and your customers to protect your borders. To keep yourselves safe and to deny the coronavirus the opportunity to spread. Well, not on your watch anyway.
Take no chances
Mitigating risks is easier said than done. And totally pandemic-proofing your office environment probably isn’t a very realistic option. So, what steps should you take? Maybe, installing a contactless temperature checking system would be a good place to start – to tackle the problem at source and deny entry to anyone showing COVID-19 symptoms. Here’s the kit you’ll need:
• Infrared digital thermometer
• Temperature display screen
• Facial recognition software
Luckily, the team here at Quad Vision have put all this great technology together in one simple package. We’ve created an intuitive tablet-based temperature checking solution that is as easy to install as it is to operate. You’ll be up-and-running in no time.
Sure, but how much?
Some would argue that restoring a long-lost feeling of safety and security is priceless. Most people would disagree though. So, we’ve made our new contactless temperature checking system as cost effective as possible. And if you’ve got time for a quick chat, we can give you an immediate quote on the spot.
Now for the science bit
Our temperature checking system uses Melexis thermal imaging technology. In conjunction with cooling fans. This maximises accuracy. And we can read your visitor’s temperature and display the results in 1.81 seconds – 1.82 seconds if they’re wearing a protective mask. The facial recognition technology we use has an identification accuracy of 99.70%. That’s some serious accuracy. It’s so good in fact, that it can even be used as a check in/ check out system for secure office and warehouse locations. For a deeper dive into the technology, you might want to read this handy guide.
To complete your COVID-19 risk mitigation kit, you might also want to consider some of the other goodies we have on offer. We’ve combined hand washing with digital signage in our new LCD Hand Sanitizer product and have upgraded our Video Conferencing solution making it even better for remote working and COVID-safe collaboration. Feel free to explore all our workplace solutions or get in touch for a chat. We really would love to tell you more.
The team here at Quad Vision wish you and your colleagues the best of luck on your individual road to recovery. May we all emerge stronger, leaner and more resilient than ever.
