Now it's possible to screen crowds of people showing symptoms of COVID-19

COVID-19 Situation

Mitigate the risk of COVID-19 spreading across passengers

Keeping the nation travelling as lockdown gradually lifts, transport and travel for essential visits and business have been limited throughout the outbreak of coronavirus. As a travel or transport manager, how taxing has this added pressure been on your workforce? Extra staff managing entrances at risk, in close contact with the public, and the feeling of unease that your facility is a breeding ground for the virus.

According to the NHS, the main symptoms of coronavirus are a high temperature and a new, continuous cough. But the problem with high temperature (or fever as it’s medically known) is that this can go unnoticed and untreated by the individual as it doesn’t present as ‘cold or flu-like’ symptoms.

Temperature Screening

Protect your staff and the public with thermal detection

The safety of your transport facility staff and your visitors to keep Dorset and Hampshire travelling is a key priority for us here at Unique. And we understand the financial risk that COVID-19 poses to essential travel depots if the spread affects your workforce, operations or perpetuates the spread of the virus. Let us help you get Dorset transport links back travelling safely.

During this difficult time and situation for the transport industry, we see automatic temperature screening systems (that uses new AI thermal imaging camera technology) as the only solution to enable you to mitigate risk of coronavirus spread and reassure the public that you are operating safely. There are a number of ways that you can integrate this system for your facility, but across the board, the main benefits to installing thermal imaging systems for your Dorset or Hampshire based transport link are:

  • Allows security staff to scan large numbers of people as they walk by
  • Displays and detects critical body temperature elevations in real time.
  • Alerts authorities when identified individuals with raised temperatures.
  • Protects workforce health by screening for fevers caused by viruses.

Ultimately, one of these systems will enable your facility to reopen safely, sooner.

How will temperature screening work in your business?

There are a number of temperature screening systems we can install across Dorset and Hampshire here at Unique. The most effective is a simple thermal imaging camera with the new COVID-19 technology that ‘screens’ all passengers and alerts security staff if there is a high body temperature recorded (specific to the head) so they can safely deal with the person.

  • Less than 1 second to detect skin-surface temperature.
    Minimal queuing by your passengers waiting to get into your transportation which reduces the staff costs and safety of managing queues with no contact.
  • Simultaneous multi-person detection within crowds.
    With its impressive detection speed, there is no need to create single file lines for people to queue (which would need to monitored) simply use one security staff member to manage the screen.
  • Requires no physical contact to test for a high fever.
    Reduce the risk of your colleagues contracting coronavirus by not exposing them closely to long lines of crowded people as the thermal imaging system manages this for you. No physical contact tests.
  • Audible alarm notifies security operators or sends message.
    Quick and effective notifications that will alert security or management staff and authorities of a high temperature on an individual so they can be dealt with appropriately.
  • Smart technology ignores other heat sources to reduce false alarms.
    This new artificial intelligence software is clever enough to ignore other heat sources that wouldn’t constitute a high temperature within a person. This has been acknowledged by medical boards globally.
