As the UK’s roadmap successfully meanders towards June 21st, more people are travelling, shops are reopening, and many offices are beginning to come back to life. However, the need for social distancing and the wearing of face masks remains in place, and may continue to do so for some considerable time even beyond June 21st.
The risk of contracting and/or spreading COVID remains very real, especially among younger adults, most of whom won’t receive their first vaccination dose until the end of July 2021, so the need to build confidence in customers, staff and the travelling public remains as vital as ever.
Clearway, based in Dartford, Kent, offers a proven and highly successful Body Temperature Detection Camera solution that has been installed at hundreds of locations across the UK, from transports hubs to ambulance stations to food factories and shopping centres.
These discreet thermal cameras detect elevated body temperature which may indicate the presence of a fever. With technology offering accuracy of down to ±0.3°, it can take such a camera less than a second to detect someone’s temperature, thus allowing large numbers of people to be screened at the same time whilst on the move, such as moving through a turnstile or entry gate/doors. As people pass a body temperature detection camera, an alarm will immediately sound to alert security staff when a person with an elevated body temperature is detected. This enables their admission to a building or site to be temporarily prevented until their temperature can be checked manually with a non-contact, hand-held thermometer.
Quick and easy to install in the majority of cases, these camera systems are one of the simplest and most effective ways for employers, H&S and facilities managers to reassure staff, visitors and the public, in these still-uncertain times, that their workplace, travel or retail destination is being protected as far as is possible.
Hospitality and leisure sectors will also benefit greatly from these systems once they’re able to allow customers to enjoy their facilities inside again.
