10 Ways the Turing Shield Temperature AI Scanners Protects and Empowers Business Operations

The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging all of us, but it’s especially difficult for business owners who are trying to protect their employees while also keeping their operations running smoothly.

While we’re all hopeful that the vaccine will bring us back to normal, experts caution that it will be a minimum of a year before that even begins to happen. In the meantime, thousands of people are dying every day and case numbers continue to spike.

Thermal scanning solutions, such as the AI integrated Turing Shield, is an easy-to-use and affordable way to keep both employees and businesses as safe as possible. More than 1,000 organizations across the country, including Coca-Cola, Costco, Albertsons, and Trader Joe’s are deploying thermal scanning solutions to safeguard their patrons, employees, and business operations.

Here are 10 ways thermal scanning solutions can help businesses.

  1. With the Turing Shield solution, a health questionnaire is provided to employees complete either on the device itself or on their smartphones. This is your first line of defense against both illness — and potential lawsuits.

  2. Next, a non-contact thermal temperature check is taken, which takes just a fraction of a second and is highly accurate.

  3. As the employee’s temperature is being taken, the Turing Shield detects if a mask is being worn, sparing receptionists and others from the repetitive task of having to remind people to put on a mask.

  4. A self-operating system, which does not require any employees to monitor it, not only saves time and resources, but it eliminates the close contact needed to perform temperature checks.

  5. If an employee passes the screening, a printed badge can be generated to clear employees to enter the workplace. In addition, the badge is able work in tandem with security systems to enable contact tracing.

  6. In the event an employee tests positive for COVID-19, the Turing Shield is able to quickly and efficiently execute contact tracing. It’s important to note, many states are requiring contact tracing to be performed within just one business day.

  7. The Turing Shield is available in single-person or multi-person models.

  8. The Turing Shield is based on guidelines put forth by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, giving peace of mind that businesses are following all government recommendations.

  9. Lawsuits related to COVID-19 are on the rise. The Turing Shield provides you with a complete record of the actions taken to keep the workplace safe.

  10. The Turing Shield uses an Enterprise Class Linux operating system, which is regarded by experts as one of the most-secure operating systems available on the market. All information is stored and secured in AWS for even a greater level of security.

These times are stressful and challenging for everyone, but AI integrated Turing Shield can help keep both your employees and your business safe.

Hi Steve, Thank you for writing this blog. You are a great partner to Turing and it has been a pleasure to know and work with you the past 30 years. I hear daily that Covid litigation issues continue to rise. The Turing cloud centric approach to compliance reporting provides immediate reporting on Covid "outbreaks" and "major outbreaks" so that companies can easily meet the 48 hour reporting times set by local health officials with a click of an email. By comparison corporate data breaches have 30 days to report. There is room in the door for two. We can help! Rick
