With airports usually a hive of activity, they are also a hot bed for germs ad pathogens. Identifying travellers who are potentially carrying viruses without their knowledge at airports and other busy transport hubs is very much like finding a needle in a haystack without the right tools and technology at your disposal.

With many carriers asymptomatic and showing no visible symptoms of illness, having thermal imaging cameras as part of your assault strategy on coronavirus is key to keeping your service users and staff safe.

Thermavis thermal imaging cameras come in a range of models including a handheld device perfect for use by airline stewards during travel. The handheld camera is battery operated, can be mounted on a tripod if needed has a screening range of up to 3 metres and is accurate to +/- 0.4 degrees centigrade.

Individual screening thermal imaging cameras are suited to airport check-in desks as they are able to scan each person individually and can be fixed to the wall or placed on a tripod. This type of device has a measuring range of 30-45 degrees centigrade and accuracy of +/- 0.3 degrees centigrade.

The Thermavis multi-person scanners accurately measure the body temperature of multiple people simultaneously, making them ideal for airport terminals of any size.

While non-invasive, they provide early warning signs that someone infected with coronavirus could be entering the airport or getting on a plane. Early detection via thermal imaging screening allows for that person to be stopped or isolated, safeguarding other passengers and airport or airline workers from the risk of infection.

The FDA recommends that, in airports, workplaces, grocery stores, concert venues, or other areas where you are trying to screen large groups of people for mass fever screening, diagnostic testing may be too difficult because of the time and costs needed to screen and get results. These systems will likely miss most individuals with COVID-19 who are contagious. Thermal imaging systems could be considered as one method for initial temperature assessment in these types of settings when used as part of a larger approach to risk management.

With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing health to the forefront of the construction industry, the ability to detect the potential signs of illness means the difference between a productive, healthy workforce and a potential risk to life. Accurate thermal imaging is especially important on construction sites where distance working isn’t always practical or possible.
