After a long period of uncertainty, quarantines, vaccination plans and a long etcetera, it seems that we can finally see light at the end of the tunnel. It is true that it is still early to talk about the end of the pandemic, but we can say that we are getting closer to our old and longed for normality, an example of this is the return to the office that more and more companies are practicing.
Workers and companies are eager to regain their old physical positions, however, and as recommended by the health authorities, we must continue to take precautions to avoid new transmissions. This means that companies will have to adapt their spaces and elements to try to reduce risks.
As we anticipated in this article on our blog, adapting workspaces is key to protecting the workforce, but we should not only take into account how much furniture, type of materials, layout of the work area, etc. … it is also interesting to consider other more technological solutions.
Technology can help us from reducing contact to improving hygiene. How do you think they can do it? We explain it to you.
Capacity control applications.
There are several application providers to control the capacity of a space, as well as methods, either through video or biometric clocking systems. This control can help us prevent contagion and minimize risk, since when the system detects that it has reached the maximum allowed, it alerts those responsible for its control so that they can take action.
They are known to all and their use is more common. These types of keys were created to provide spaces with greater security, especially to face theft or intrusions. The advantage they present is that they drastically reduce the need for physical contact and even the permanence of operators in the offices, since they can be activated remotely.
Carbon dioxide concentration meters.
These systems allow the concentration of gases to be controlled by means of sensors and equipment that are monitored by building management and automation systems, in such a way that clear and schematic information can be obtained and thus avoid the increase of favorable conditions for the propagation of respiratory viruses.
To avoid the use of physical devices to validate access through fingerprint biometrics and thus avoid contact between objects and people, it is very useful to use cards or other devices equipped with Contactless technology that allow you to “sign in” without any kind of contact.
If you would like your office to be as safe as it is technological, contact us, we are sure we can help you.
