Due to the strain the recent months have had on the world and global organisations, big changes have had to make in order to ensure a safe return to regular working life for all personnel.
TDS have since been working at the forefront to ensure organisations safe return to work. Due to the coronavirus, all organisations will now have to apply stricter guidelines when welcoming all personnel to their facility, as not doing so now carries a larger consequence than ever before, meaning implementing enhanced security solutions is also more important than ever before.
In this article, 5 ways to help your organisation return to work following the coronavirus pandemic will be highlighted:
1. Pre Screening All Personnel to Minimise Risk
It is now extremely important to gain as much information about people who enter your facility in terms of their health and their exposure to areas where the virus may be less contained. Before we would have never considered screening visitors to discover more about their state of health but in a few short months, it has become a priority to do so.
TDS' enhanced pre-screening functionality allows companies to pre-screen guests prior to arrival, minimising the risk of infection reaching your facility.
This pre-screening functionality allows hosts to send a list of questions to visitors, which they are required to answer prior to accepting their visit.
- Have you had contact with anyone with Covid-19 in the last 14 days?
- Have you had a cough, fever or difficulty breathing in the last 14 days?
- Have you been outside of the country in the last 14 days?
2. Creating a Touchless Experience with Contactless Check-In's
TDS have developed a fully-contactless check-in process, which combines the standard TDS Kiosk, a mobile check-in platform and geolocation technology. Limiting human contact is a sure way to slow down the spread of Covid-19, therefore creating a contactless experience across all industries is the way forward.
Users can avail of contactless check-in scanning the QR code located on the kiosk in the lobby on their arrival. This will then prompt them to complete the check-in process on their device.
3. Implementing Capacity Management for Social Distancing Measures
Protecting your staff and personnel from any possible risk is now a necessity for all organisations following the coronavirus pandemic. By monitoring the number of people in your facility at all times, you can maintain social distancing measures which will likely be in place for an extended period of time when we return to work.
Maintaining a smaller number of people within your office space will ensure proper management of capacity while also creating a safe, workable environment without disruption.
Capacity Management functionality allows companies to effectively monitor the building capacity of employees, visitors and contractors in real-time. Set a capacity limit to ensure you stay compliant with social distancing measures. Once capacity is met, people can only enter in a 1-in-1-out system.
4. Strictly Maintaining Hygiene Standards Throughout Entire Facility
One sure way that a person entering your facility can reduce the chance of spreading a virus, is to stringently maintain their personal hygiene standards. This will mainly be through proper hand hygiene but also spreads to employees of the facility maintaining hygiene on regularly touched surfaces such as phones, desks and Visitor kiosks or readers.
With TDS, it is extremely important to provide optimum sanitisation for all people entering and exiting facilities post-pandemic. TDS have developed a Sanitisation Station that can be easily deployed to all facilities and will be the most important point of contact when entering the facility.
TDS' Sanitisation Station provides full protection from point of entry and is a one-stop station for arriving on-site. The Sanitisation Station features a 'swipe in' reader for capacity management and instructions on proper sanitisation to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus again.
5. Custom Alert Notifications to Further Reduce Risk of Infection
Custom Alerts allows companies to tie threshold alerts to any conditions that meet requirements. It is also important to inform all employees of the criteria that any visitors must meet in order to be granted entry to the facility. Becoming clear with the criteria is an important aspect for all employees to know in case of possible discrepancies in the pre-screening process.
The Custom Alert functionality allows companies to be notified when visitors fail the pre-screening process, when building capacity is met, or when Covid Safety Officer is off-premises. Alerts can be pre-programmed around any data captured by the system.
The key benefits provided with Custom Alerts are improvements to the overall visitor experience, reduces administrative burdens, increases accountability for on-site visitors, streamlines visitor check-in process and customises check-in experiences.
