Thermal Scanners for Contractors & Developers
Safer, Faster, Smarter
Help America Restart Smart
Jobs in construction sites are already risky for construction workers, contractors, and developers. With the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the construction industry has become more dangerous since it is impossible for masons, engineers, and foremen to practice social distancing in the workplace. This is why thermal scanners for contractors and developers are important to have in jobsites. Thermal scanners can scan the workers for fever before they start working and interacting with their workmates. Additionally, temperature screening solutions can provide more than fever-detection.

What Are Thermal Imaging Cameras?
Thermal Imaging Cameras are able to measure an object’s temperature at high accuracy in real-time. They enable quick detection of elevated skin temperatures. They are capable of discovering and tracking people’s body temperature in crowded public areas. Thermal imaging equipment can also easily be installed and implemented in places such as airports, hospitals, clinics, office buildings, cruise ships, and any large public gathering location.
Benefits of Thermal Cameras for Contractors & Developers
The person who handles the thermal imaging system is not required to be physically close to the person being evaluated. In fact, the person who handles the thermal imaging system could be in a different area or room.
Scientific studies show that, when used correctly, thermal imaging systems generally measure surface skin temperature accurately. This is very helpful as the fever has been proven to be
one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19.
The thermal imaging system may measure surface skin temperature faster than the typical forehead or oral (mouth) thermometer that requires a close distance or physical contact with the person being evaluated. This makes access and traffic flow faster and smoother.

Thermal Scanners in Action
Thermal cameras monitor construction worker healthA New York City contractor installed thermal cameras in their job sites to scan workers for fever, one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19. The temperature screening solution was set up in such a way that workers approaching the job site will be encouraged to do so by one, pausing briefly in front of the camera to make sure it gets an accurate read of their temperature before they’re permitted on site. The camera checks are not a definitive measurement of who might be carrying the coronavirus but can provide more security, safety, and comfort for workers on site.
Contractors use FLIR thermal camera for efficiencyFLIR thermal cameras help contractors find and document energy loss and other problems they could not otherwise easily find. This saves them time and money. Home inspectors were the first to adopt the use of thermal imaging, but all the building trades are now jumping on board. Most recently electricians, HVAC technicians, and plumbers have started to use thermal imaging to find problem areas quicker–and from a safer distance. Thermal imaging can be used by all trades–if they are not using it now they should start using it. Thermal imaging points contractors in the right direction and moisture meters are then used to isolate the problem.
