#OpenSafely | Body Temperature Detection Technology to Help Businesses Get Back to Work


After the COVID-19 pandemic forced the rapid closure of non-essential workplaces, schools, and public venues, organizations are now working toward the safe reopening of their facilities amid some uncertainty. APL Access & Security has the security solutions that help businesses #OpenSafely.

With the number of COVID-19 cases decreasing in some areas and rising in others, businesses and institutions realize that to reopen successfully, people need to feel confident and safe. Because of this, many organizations are quickly adopting health and safety screening policies and procedures to prepare for the reopening of their buildings. One of the most efficient uses of these practices is using body temperature detection technology as a means of initial assessment. Elevated body temperature detection systems allow the operator to screen for elevated body temperatures in a crowd from a safe distance with no human contact necessary to minimize risk of spreading infectious diseases such as Coronavirus. While these systems are not a means to detect or diagnose infectious diseases, they can detect elevated body temperatures that reach the CDC’s threshold for a definition of fever, which can allow security personnel to decide if further medical evaluation is needed.
