Using Facial Recognition To Prevent Virus Spread In The Workplace

Venus_Clock_ImageIn the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, organizations are turning to facial recognition technologies as a way to combat the spread of the virus. The technology is tried and tested and can function as a means to securely authenticate people when punching locations – without having to touch anything. Additionally, this solution gives you the option to take an employee’s temperature and alert management if the temperature is high when punching. These are all important steps that need to be taken in order to control and prevent the spread of the virus, while at the same time getting people back into the office in a safe manner.

Preventing the spread of the coronavirus

The coronavirus spreads mainly from person to person through aerosols that are emitted from an infected person. However, the virus can also spread when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touches their mouth, nose, or eyes. Therefore, organizations must protect their employees by limiting the number of surfaces touched, especially in commonly used areas.

While it’s expected that everyone is washing their hands frequently throughout the day, there is really no way of confirming this. With a facial recognition time clock, employers can ensure that employees are not touching the same surface as everyone else when punching, reducing the risk of transmission.

Getting employees back to work safely

Resuming operations and getting back to work is critical for many organizations to financially survive this pandemic. But putting safety first above anything else is paramount because management teams bear the primary responsibility for navigating their organization through this disruption. That means eliminating the risk of infection, preventing employees from having to use their sick time, and protecting yourself from liability due to COVID-19 exposure.

Leveraging touchless punching and touchless temperature checks with facial recognition time clocks ensure protocols are in place to safeguard workers and makes them feel safe. By providing this technology, leaders may even be able to strengthen corporate culture, increase employee engagement, and boost productivity and loyalty in the long run.
