FEVER SCREENING SOLUTIONS - Using IR and Thermal Products

Fever Screening with Thermal Solutions

IR / Thermal Imaging Technology - Fever Screening

As restrictions start to lift return-to-work procedures will be at the forefront of discussion in businesses around the world! Although procedures are in place now they will need to be reassessed as more people re-join the workforce and more businesses reopen.

As part of your return-to-work procedure or plan you are likely to require some test equipment; this may not be the type you normally purchase but they will be instrumental in keeping your processes up and running.  Test equipment, alongside other measures, could help keep your staff safe!*  For example, one of your measures that is likely to become increasingly important is screening for elevated body temperature (EBT) and current advice points to a non-contact method:

  • Non-contact IR Temperature Thermometers
  • Handheld Thermal Cameras
  • Other Thermal Imaging Solutions 

Fever Screening - Keeping Staff Safe

Keeping staff members safe will be very important, however, the plans you put in place will differ depending on the nature of your business.  When considering the need for EBT screening and test equipment you may ask the following questions*

  • What type of working environment do we have?
  • How many staff members will we need to screen each day?
  • How quick do we need to screen them?

Forehead thermometers are extremely affordable, therefore you could purchase several for your business.  Thermal cameras are obviously more expensive but they are faster!  Consider the volume of people and the speed required so your staff members are not forced into close proximity.  As more restrictions are lifted and businesses start to reopen to the general public you may even require a fixed-mounted thermal solution.

Fever Screening - Forehead Thermometers

Forehead thermometers are increasingly used as effective screening tools for the detection of raised skin temperature.  In a post-lockdown world we envisage  they will be utilised in most places of work and eventually public-facing businesses like bars and restaurants as mentioned in the media.
