Protect Your Employees with INSI’s COVID-19 Thermal Scan Technology at the Entrance!
Good news: the latest Georgia unemployment rates have fallen back down to 7.6% in June! Undeniably, companies are trying to establish a new normal in light of COVID-19. However, the number one concern for all employers remains employee health. Obviously, everyone from storefront owners to high-rise operators is asking “how do we keep every person who walks through our doors safe?”.
It is clear that some companies have no choice but to operate in person. This includes manufacturing, retail, business services, medical facilities, schools, and more. Unfortunately, every person who walks through the door is a potential risk to dozens of others. Even worse, the risk cascades out to each affected employee’s family and friends. So how do you keep your employees and visitors safe?
Georgia Business Requirements
According to the Georgia.org website, Governor Kemp has issued guidelines for businesses that are in effect until August 31, 2020. Generally, this order requires businesses to practice social distance and sanitation rules, in accordance with CDC guidelines, to keep everyone safe. Further, employees, students, and visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face masks and take temperature checks at the front door. However, one question remains: how can this be controlled when there are multiple people entering the building daily?
In general, OSHA’s General Duty Clause requires employers to “provide their employees with a workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm.” Although OSHA does not have specific rules for COVID-19, they do provide general guidelines here.
Clearly, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact time and location a person became infected. However, businesses who do not exercise caution put themselves at a disadvantage if multiple employees and visitors become infected. Therefore, it is always best to be vigilant.
INSI’s COVID-19 Thermal Scanning Technology
Now, imagine having the ability to scan temperatures, on a large scale, without dedicated staff to screen each person. Further, imagine receiving video-enabled alerts when someone with a temperature tries to enter your building. Fortunately, INSI’s thermal camera system does just that. Clearly put, this device provides a comprehensive temperature screening solution that can detect elevated temperature levels before a person enters your facility.
Lobby Kiosk Thermal Scanning
Our Lobby Kiosk solution is ideal for companies that have small waiting rooms. In particular, this is a video-enabled door phone that places a video call to the receptionist and then alerts them if the associated thermal camera detects an elevated temperature. Clearly, this is a great way to protect your staff before a visitor enters your main facilities. In addition. the information can be stored for future reference.
