It’s hard to own a business right now. In some parts of the country you’re just lucky to be open, and in other parts, your staff’s come back but the office sure does look different. You’re doing things you never thought you’d have to. One example is temperature screening.
How does temperature screening help employees stay safe?
A person with a fever is sick, period. They may not be contagious, but it doesn’t make sense to take chances. Certainly not right now, but really this is the sort of thing you should have been thinking about all along. Checking employee temperatures helps you screen out people who come to work when they probably shouldn’t.
Why can’t you just trust your people?
Some people are very dedicated to their jobs. They come to work because they think they’re needed. Others just aren’t really in touch with their bodies. They may not know they’re sick. Still others may choose to come to work because they’re keeping to a routine, or because they feel like they “might as well” since they’re dropping off the kids.
The bottom line here is that it’s your responsibility as the business owner to make sure that you’re thinking about all your employees. You need to see the big picture. You need information. You need to know what’s going on out there.
A word about temperature screening…
The bloodsucking lawyers are making me put this in the article before I go much further.
Temperature screening is only one step toward determining health. People need not have a fever in order to be contagious. No form of temperature screening is guaranteed 100% accurate.
I hate bloodsucking lawyers. They take the fun out of everything.
Now that we got that out of the way…
This is the SecurityTronix ThermScan. It will let you test an employee’s temperature with no contact. With the Thermscan, you’ll find that there’s no need for an employee in full PPE at the entrance to the building. The Thermscan mounts to the wall. People walk up to it, and within one second you’ll know if it’s safe for them to enter.
If it’s not safe, an alarm will sound and you’ll know quickly. You’ll be free to take the action you need. The alarm sounds at 99 degrees, which is considered feverish when measured on a no-contact thermometer.
Thermscan is different
I know there are several other products like this on the market. Some even use the same outer shell. But my friends at SecurityTronix have completely customized the inner workings of this product and it’s different from anything else you’ll see. It’s accurate, safe, and economical. And it’s just what you need right now.
A little more
The folks in the marketing department cooked up this little video advertising the Thermscan:
It’s perfect to share with other people who don’t like reading blogs like this one, and I encourage you to do so.
As for you, I suggest getting a Thermscan now. Solid Signal has a great supply of them but this sort of thing is going to fly off the shelves once stay-at-home orders are lifted across the country. It really does pay to keep one step ahead of this thing… that’s how we’ll beat it.
