The year 2020 has been defined by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. And while it may feel like the worst is behind us, there are signs that a so-called 'second wave' could be upon us very soon.
Israel recently became the first country in the world to declare a second lockdown, and with UK cases once again rising rapidly, there's a very real possibility that nationwide restrictions will have to be reintroduced here as well.
While certain counties have already been subjected to local lockdowns - including, just today, Rhondda Cynon Taf - most British businesses are free to continue operating, at least for now. But workplace safety must remain the top priority for organisations in all sectors.
What can I do to protect my employees?
If you're not sure how to make your premises as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend that you read our blog on Making Your Workplace COVID Secure. You should also familiarise yourself with the Health and Safety Executive's latest information and advice.
IDS Security can install several systems to help you limit the spread of coronavirus, including:
- Temperature Screening Systems - Identify individuals with an elevated body temperature and make sure they don't enter your building. A high temperature is a common symptom of COVID-19, so our thermal imaging cameras can be a very useful tool for preventing transmission.
- People Counting Cameras - Corona virus is more likely to spread in large crowds. Our density control systems are designed to help you limit the number of people on your premises at any one time.
To request a quote for either of these systems, please call IDS Security on 029 20 753 251 today.
