Managing Workforce in a Pandemic
The workplace can't assume a passive role in securing the safety of its workers anymore. The active role should involve having a system that identifies SOP compliance to the T before letting anybody into one's premises. High body temperature is a huge red flag. But since some of the infected are not having temperature anymore (though some do), the more critical SOPs are mask-wearing and physical distancing. One has to keep 1 meter or 1.5-meter distance when communicating with the other person without fail.
Another area that needs precaution is visitor management. Make your visitor system contactless—discard pen and paper, don't touch any ID for clarification. Digitalize everything. Let visitors preregister and scan the QR code when they arrive. Scan their temperature, make sure they are wearing the mask at ALL times and keeping a distance from one another.
All the information may sound redundant, but it is crucial for us to survive this ordeal.
TimeTec provides devices as a precautionary measure during this pandemic and other solutions like TimeTec Smart Attendance (www.timetecta.com), TimeTec Visitor Management System (www.timetecvms.com) for contactless visitor management and FingerTec Face ID 5/FTD (www.fingertec.com) that can scan face for recognition for attendance and door control, and scan body temperature and mask-wearing compliance at the same time.
