Temperature Screening for Employees arriving at Work

Employers need to adopt sensible precautions for staff arriving at work during the current pandemic. Temperature Screening is an important precaution for the safety of other workers

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has acknowledged that, to ensure the health and safety of their employees, employers may reasonably undertake systems to identify individuals that have experienced or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms

With the substantial change to life that COVID-19 has brought, individuals and business are racing to response to the new challenges presented by COVID-19. In these testing times, Answers Investigation provide professional and specialist support to the problems individuals and business face

With many major infrastructures, such as London Heathrow airport, already implementing temperature screening, many businesses are looking to introduce safety protections for staff returning to officed environments

With many organisations in speculation as to the next steps of how to protect their workspace and employees, temperature screening provides an immediate and efficient means to continue productivity whilst maximising safety. Schemes such as this are already in place in many international countries and will most likely continue to be replicated. Employers have an obligation under common law and UK health and safety legislation to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of their employees, but this does not mean you have to compromise the functionality of your business

Why to use a third party for screening

  • Personnel are properly trained to use equipment and to deal with contentious situations such as refusal and understands what factors aside from COVID-19 could influence readings
  • Our staff use correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for their own safety and for the safety of your employees
  • Our personnel understand about the need to gain consent and will not leave you open to employee grievance or litigation
  • We will work in accordance with your hours and staggered opening times
  • Notes on implementation:

  • The tester must ask employees whether they consent to having their temperatures tested. If an employee refuses to be tested, he or she will not be admitted to the workplace, on the basis that their attendance could jeopardize the health and safety of others
  • In addition to conducting temperature screening, the tester should ask each employee who enters the workplace whether he or she is exhibiting any flu-like symptoms (coughing, shortness of breath, fever) or is otherwise feeling unwell
  • The tester should also ask whether the employee has had close contact with someone in the past 14 days who has been diagnosed with, or is presumed to have, COVID-19
  • If possible, employees should be tested and asked the above screening questions in a private or semi-private area, out of the sight and earshot of their colleagues, contractors or other visitors
  • Test results must not be collected, recorded, stored, used or disclosed for any purpose aside from determining whether the employee should be permitted to enter the workplace. The additional privacy best practices, identified above, should be followed
  • Employees with temperatures at or above 38˚C (100.4˚F), or who answer “yes” to any of the screening questions, should be advised to return home, self-isolate, and call their regular doctor or local public health authority to discuss their symptoms, treatment options, quarantine requirements, and for an assessment regarding the next steps
