Your people are the number one asset inside your school, municipality, and business.
So why not do all you can to protect them and make sure they’re working in an environment that’s safe and comfortable?
Organizations like yours are wanting to protect their employees, customers, and vendors. One of the best methods of prevention and detection is using thermal imaging technology. While there’s no such thing as a thermal detection solution that can detect or diagnose a sickness, thermal imaging can be used in detecting elevated body temperatures in high-traffic public places through quick individual screening.
How thermal imaging solutions work
Thermal detection scans specific areas around the corner of the eye and forehead to validate whether the subject has an above-average temperature.
If the employee has an elevated body temperature, they may be taken aside to be further screened. We all know how important detecting high body temperatures is prior to someone entering your building or workspace. The result of this is to help reduce or dramatically slow the spread of sicknesses, viruses, and infections.
As your organization, school, or municipality considers adding thermal imaging solutions to your intelligent building strategy, you’ll want to consider the following.
- The person who handles the thermal imaging system is not required to be physically close to the person being evaluated.
- Your thermal imaging system could be in a different area or room while being scanned to ensure maximum safety.
- Believe it or not, your thermal imaging solution may measure surface skin temperature faster than the typical forehead or oral (mouth) thermometers.
- Scientific studies show that, when used correctly, thermal imaging systems are incredibly accurate
- Thermal imaging solutions, as part of your building design strategy, can keep your employees safer than ever before because of the prevention and early detection of ailments that may spread throughout your school, office, or government building.
- Thermal imaging solutions are great for high throughput areas such as office buildings, schools, colleges, city and state buildings, airports, and even sporting events.
Around the world, organizations and governments are responding to the unprecedented circumstances related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.
Good hygiene practices aside, technology should be leveraged as a method to preventing the spread of various sicknesses by measuring body temps and limiting contact between groups of people as much as possible.
Parallel Technologies has been empowering people through intelligent building designs for more than 20 years. Part of intelligent building design is tapping new technologies like thermal imaging solutions.
