    Safeguard Your Organisations with With Stringent Measures

    With the recent Covid-19 pandemic, TDS are releasing the head counting functionality from our TDS Lifesafety solution to provide global organisations with the capability to effectively monitor social distancing. With stricter regulations to be enforced in workplaces to safeguard everyone on-site, head counting measures have been redeveloped to mitigate risks and improve the probability of a safer workplace in the event of an unprecedented crisis like we find ourselves in now

    Social distancing is a fundamental health measure that will need to met in all workplaces when it is time to return to on-site work. As a public health measure to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in the future, ensuring compliance from all employees and personnel entering the site is now extremely important for overall business continuity following this crisis.

    Implementing measures to ensure compliance is the one of the best ways your organisation can safeguard your staff and personnel for the foreseeable future, post-pandemic.


    Utilising Head Counting for Social Distancing Measures Post-Pandemic

    Normally featured within our TDS Lifesafety solution for digital emergency evacuations, our head counting functionality is used to monitor employees, visitors, and contractors in real-time. Available on both the safety information panel and back-office dashboard, head counting gives a live reading of how many people are on-site, within each location or zone. To help prevent the spread of infection, TDS are now offering the stand alone feature as a means for introducing effective social distancing measures.

    Accurately Accounting For All Personnel Within Your Facility 

    To ensure social distancing guidelines are followed accurately, our head counting functionality includes an occupancy threshold for each zone or location throughout your facility, with maximum numbers set by each individual company.

    Two separate ID scanning readers for entering and exiting your facility will be implemented outside locations.

    The occupancy for each zone or location will be on display on the SIP (Safety Information Panel) as well as on the access dashboard. 

    Updated in real-time, when a threshold is nearly at full capacity, alerts will automatically notify relevant security personnel. For TDS Access users, when the site limit is reached, the access points for zones with full occupancy will become inactive, preventing any further personnel from entering until occupancy is reduced.

    Following this pandemic, it will take a lot of personal effort for people to abide by restricted guidelines of sanitisation and social distancing in order to uphold their part in keeping themselves and others safe. TDS have planned for people returning to work and feeling as safe as possible in doing so with the secure head counting feature we have now implemented.
