Thermal Screening Solutions
THE NEW NORMAL
Elevated temperature screening is one technology that should play a key part in return to work strategies and the safe reopening of businesses. This valuable solution uses a thermal and optical camera to analyse body temperature, which is a key indicator of the presence of a potential illness, and discreetly alerts the operator when the set temperature threshold is exceeded by someone screened by the tool.
With temperature screening technology in place, the exposure of potentially infected individuals to others can be dramatically decreased and the risk of a localised outbreak minimised.
Furthermore, for businesses such as retailers whose success is dependent on customers feeling safe to visit the premises, it has the added benefit of giving them additional assurances that visible measures for their protection are in place.
In combination with other solutions, such as vigorous testing and screens to protect employees and customers, returning to work can be safe and controlled.

Handheld Thermal Screening Solutions
Along with remote capabilities, there are several other crucial factors to consider. The solution must be quick and easy to implement, as well as being highly accurate. When paired with a blackbody, the accuracy of temperature screening solutions can be within 0.3°C.
Connectivity is also key and adopting an end-to-end solution linked to a centralised command and control location is invaluable. With holistic connectivity, these solutions can encompass cameras installed in multiple locations, and alarms can be viewed locally, remotely or on a smartphone app. This means that staff do not need to provide direct supervision to the device onsite.
With the guidelines regarding which industries and sectors can reopen changing on an almost daily basis, it is important that these protective solutions can be installed without overhauling the surveillance infrastructure already in place.
Looking ahead, adopting a solution with an upgrade path to other enhancements, such a facial recognition, is favourable as they can be used in conjunction with future and existing security measures.
Businesses have plenty on their minds as they prepare for the uncertainty that is sure to continue throughout the rest of the year and beyond. However, due diligence cannot be left to the wayside when looking to adopt an elevated temperature screening solution.
As the economy cautiously reopens, the country will have to adapt to a ‘new normal’ over the coming months.
Elevated temperature screening solutions should be implemented by businesses to protect the health of the workforce and customers alike – ultimately paving the way to a safe and controlled return to work.
