Good news: the latest Georgia unemployment rates have fallen back down to 7.6% in June! Undeniably, companies are trying to establish a new normal in light of COVID-19. However, the number one concern for all employers remains employee health. Obviously, everyone from storefront owners to high-rise operators is asking “how do we keep every person who walks through our doors safe?”.  There is no better solution than thermal scanning technology.

Companies that Have to Operate in Person

It is clear that some companies have no choice but to operate in person. This includes manufacturing, retail, business services, medical facilities, schools, and more. Unfortunately, every person who walks through the door is a potential risk to dozens of others. Even worse, the risk cascades out to each affected employee’s family and friends. Fortunately, thermal scanning technology keep your employees and visitors safe!  Without a doubt, INSI’s premiere IT support solutions reacted quickly to this demand.

Georgia Business Requirements

According to the website, Governor Kemp has issued a “shelter in place” for businesses that are in effect until August 1st, 2020. Generally, this order asks businesses to practice social distance and sanitation rules, in accordance with CDC guidelines, to keep everyone safe. Further, employees, students, and visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face masks and take temperature checks at the front door. However, one question remains: how can this be controlled when there are multiple people entering the building daily?  Thermal scanning technology is the answer.

Legal Considerations

In general, OSHA’s General Duty Clause requires employers to “provide their employees with a workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm.” Although OSHA does not have specific rules for COVID-19, they do provide general guidelines here.
Clearly, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact time and location a person became infected. However, businesses who do not exercise caution put themselves at a disadvantage if multiple employees and visitors become infected. Therefore, it is always best to be vigilant.
