    Contact Tracing: Maintaining Employee Health and Safety Post-Pandemic

    Contact-TracingFollowing the initial strain COVID-19 had on businesses globally, TDS improved their Visitor Management solution features guaranteeing a safe return to work for all personnel. However, bringing all employees back to the office as the pandemic remains a risk factor within offices comes with other issues which will require further preventative measures such as contact tracing.

    Identifying Risk and Protecting Employees Health in the Workplace

    Implementing all recommended restrictions and guidelines is the best way to reduce virus transmission, but further measures must be put in place if all restrictions and guidelines are not fully met and someone enters the office with the virus.

    In the event of an employee falling ill, your organisation must act fast to ensure all others in the office remain healthy and do not become infected. With the coronavirus pandemic, reducing the spread of the illness in the workplace is extremely important. In doing so, many organisations will now need to implement contact tracing in order to further maintain a safe workplace. 

    Contact tracing which is now a key strategy for preventing further spread of COVID-19 breaks down into three 3 key concepts which include:

    1. Finding out who came into contact with an infected person,
    2. Notifying anyone who may have been exposed,
    3. Providing support to those who are in quarantine to prevent further transmission.

    Through the increased focus on visitor information and reports, TDS provide organisations with countless data reports to highlight important and insightful visitor and user trends for reporting purposes, particularly important for contact tracing capabilities.

    With TDS, contact tracing can be completed sufficiently for visitors coming into your workplace using the reporting capabilities of TDS Visitor. With real-time visual reporting capabilities, users can also identify trends, increasing the opportunity of improving on-site visitor management, including events, catering, facility management and parking. 

    Here are some of the ways TDS are tracking and monitoring visits and entries as part of a contact tracing system within their global offices and organisations: 

    Visitor By Host

    A real-time report that highlights which visitors are currently signed-in and with which host. By configuring a report, Management Teams can identify how many visitors are with each host during a specific period. 


    Visitor Books

    A detailed history of all visitors that have accessed a site. This report contains advanced search and filter options that can be used to enable a deep dive to find the relative information required. 

    Reporting Dashboard 2 (1)-1 Registration Type

    Provides users with information relating to the method of registration visitors used when entering their details onto TDS Visitor. Registration types are either via Quick Register or capture models, identifying if visitors are pre-registering (invitation) or showing up without prior notice (ad hoc).

    Reporting Dashboard 1-1

    Pattern Processing 

    A regular report of visitors that are on-site inside a certain data range. By understanding the pattern flow of report such as peak times, planning efficient use of resources, security staffing and space utilisation can be optimised. 

    HeadCount Reporting 

    A greater understanding of visitor activities on-site; from visit dates to collection points. By providing data-rich insights for both real-time and historic visits, Management Teams can analyse visits by location and reason, providing insights into how managers can better manage visitors on-site. 


    Gaining Contact Tracing Insights From Detailed Reporting Post-Pandemic

    TDS reporting functionalities allow hosts to save visitor information for future reference. This reporting functionality can be customised by each organisation to design specific requirements, ensuring each organisation can demonstrate compliance for external reporting that falls in line with each organisation's local COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines. 

    The creation of detailed visitor reports has provided employees and businesses with accurate, and detailed visual insights that help improve role functions inside organisations. The functionality of these reports has been enhanced for the pandemic with contact tracing, custom alerts and capacity management reports which fall in line with individual government guidelines configurable to each specific region, globally.
