People often overestimate their own healthiness and doing so can have negative consequences when employees decide to continue to work while sick. Depending on the work environment and the illness, a sick employee can infect co-workers, customers, students, patients, and the general public.
The introduction of body temperature screening to help prevent individuals from spreading pathogens could have a real, positive impact on public health by mandating employee absenteeism during illness.
While 80% of COVID-19 patients may only experience mild symptoms, they may display an elevated temperature. Workplaces and other sites are now pre-screening employees, contractors, and customers temperatures prior to entry as a preventative measure.
Body temperature screening will not provide a COVID-19 test or diagnosis; however, temperature screenings and health questionnaires are additional measures your organisation can implement to help restrict unwell individuals from entering the workplace.
Integrity Sampling Accredited Technicians are trained to conduct temperature screening on all incoming individuals, which will allow organisations the ability to make an informed decision whether an employee should be granted or denied access to the workplace.
Rapid temperature screening services – medical grade thermometers
Integrity Sampling use non-contact forehead thermometers to screen each person as they enter the designated area. Each person walks up to enter the onsite temperature screening check point and has the thermometer pointed at their forehead from 5cm distance, for 2seconds. The result is returned immediately. If a temperature is detected greater than 37.5 degrees Celsius or fever, virus or flu like symptoms are observed, the person is referred to a secondary screening point for a private consultation with the organisation’s onsite representative.
Non-contact forehead temperature screening is suitable for flow rates of up to 10 people per minute on average, per team. The screening stations are mobile and can be setup in any venue or building. Multiple screening technicians and screening stations can be arranged for large venues or multiple entrances.
