Covid-19: Pre-Screen Visitors to your Facility with Risk Profiling

Covid19prescreenriskprofilingTDS are at the forefront to support global organisations' return to work with confidence. Our goal is to assist with an action plan to protect against the pandemic and effectively set best practices when reopening to protect your people, property, and assets. 

When this pandemic eventually subsides and restrictions are eased, all organisations will need to be more health and safety-conscious going forward. The strain the pandemic will leave on organisations across the world will be significant. Now, more than ever, security and accountability within your workplace is a necessity, and no longer an option.


The Changing Face of Business Operations Post-Pandemic

Many organisations and businesses are expected to anticipate a strong financial impact due to the longevity of the restrictions that come with a global pandemic. Along with that, a large number of businesses anticipate a significant change in their companies general operation.


As most organisations have put continuity plans into place, they have shown greater plans for safety and security for all personnel entering their facility. TDS have made it a priority to properly maintain and detail an efficient visitor management process that keeps employees and visitors that are deemed essential on-site to be safe while on the premises.



Our Plan Against the Pandemic

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to develop and change, TDS realises that businesses globally are facing unprecedented challenges.

We have developed the following resources to assist businesses at this time and to plan for the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. We will update these resources weekly, as well as providing webinars, articles, and free consultation offerings to all businesses.

Visit our Covid-19 Resource Hub for articles, webinars and free consultations on how to help protect your people, property, and assets throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.


At TDS, we have implemented and will continue to implement multiple new components to provide you with the utmost protection from a pandemic. 

The tools we are providing will continually help you safeguard your business from any future strain, while also assisting your business with free, informational consultations dedicated to questions and discussions about how we can provide future-proof solutions following the crisis. 


Preventing Further Spread by Pre-Screening all Personnel

Due to the strain Covid-19 has placed on organisations globally, it is now important to enhance security procedures for all personnel entering facilities, not just visitors. Along with a contactless workflow upgrade, screening questions before entry are now an integral part of managing all personnel entering your facility while maintaining a safe and secure working environment post-pandemic.

Organisations will now need a secure way of monitoring every person who enters their facility post-pandemic to ensure the future stability of their organisation while there are restrictions still in place.

Risk Profiling Visitors Prior to Arrival

To ensure a full risk assessment before permitted entry to any facility, risk profiling with screening questions is the strongest way to prevent further spread of Covid-19 as we return to the workplace.

Before entering a facility, each expected visitor will be issued a series of questions alongside their visitor invitation relating to their health, travel, and recent contacts over the previous 14 days.

If any answers indicate recent exposure to the virus or possible symptoms is presented in answering the relevant questions, this will result in an immediate alert notification to relevant facility personnel. This will then result in entry to the facility not being granted. 


Moving Forward and Planning for a Post-Pandemic Workplace

Following this pandemic, it takes a lot of personal effort for people to stick 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 through our Risk Profiling and Pre-Screening along with our enhanced and secure contactless check-in workflow we have now implemented. The information provided by all personnel entering each facility will be the most important aspect in making sure this updated contactless solution will be fully effective.Screen Shot 2020-05-06 at 12.03.06
