COVID-19 has altered the way manufacturers ensure workplaces are safe. Many plant protocols require employee temperature checks.

Therma Scans, a Mississauga, Ont. manufacturer of thermal image screening, has developed an easy-to-use real-time technology that measures skin temperature without contacting skin.

Thermal imaging and non-contact cameras detect heat emitted from employees. Energy is converted into an electronic signal, which is converted into visible thermal images that are transmitted in real-time to a monitoring dashboard.

Triggering temperature threshold settings are monitored and controlled for multiple cameras under the same account via the app and/or the online dashboard. Notification is immediate when there’s a reading of an out-of-threshold temperature.
