Keeping the Workplace Safe With No-Contact Temperature Screening

COVID-19 has thrown the workplace into upheaval. While some workers have been able to work from home, over 40 million Americans have lost their jobs. For those that still have work, the problem then becomes workplace safety. Fortunately, thermal imaging cameras provide both workplace security, as well as a way to screen employees, vendors, and clients.

What Are Thermal Imaging Cameras?

Thermal imaging cameras are devices that create a composite image of a person’s heat. By using infrared technology, these cameras can capture the amount of heat emitted, effectively displaying if the person has a fever or above-normal temperature. Depending on the size of your business, thermal imaging cameras can come in a wide variety of sizes with various applications. By choosing the ideal size, you can screen tens or even hundreds of people in just a few minutes.

The Benefits of No-Contact Temperature Screening

Obviously, the top benefit of thermal imaging cameras is that employers can screen numerous people without the fear of the screener or other employees coming into contact with an infected person. Plus, many cameras are fully automated, meaning you don’t need to have a dedicated employee to check the cameras. Instead, you simply set a temperature limit. When someone exceeds the given temperature, the camera system sounds an alarm, alerting individuals that a person may have COVID-19.

The other advantage of no-contact temperature screening is security. Not only can you prevent infected individuals from entering the workplace, but you can also provide a way for your employees to feel at ease in the workplace. In addition to mask and social distancing, few other—if any—screening processes are more efficient and effective. With these cameras at place, your company can enjoy the productivity from employees and business from customers that help increase your bottom line.

Advantages Over Other Screening Types

Many businesses have turned to handheld thermometers to screen employees and customers. However, this usually requires employees to break social-distancing protocols, as the thermometer must be used within a short distance.

Conversely, thermal imaging cameras create a safe buffer zone between each party. Manning a thermal imaging camera is optional, and even when a worker uses the system, they maintain a safe distance, typically within 6 to 8 feet. In addition, these cameras tend to capture information more quickly, facilitating the flow of foot traffic both in and out of the business.

Where to Place Thermal Imaging Cameras

Because thermal imaging cameras are easy to set up, you can place them anywhere that you wish. Placing them at customer and employee entrances are by far the most effective practice. But you may also want to place them where you receive shipments from vendors or the location where you ship your own products.
