We are excited to announce that Fever Defence, a hands-free, infrared temperature testing device developed by Carlow-based technology company Xenon, recently participated in the CIF Construction Safety Summit. This event, brought together experts in the construction industry to discuss safety and the role of technology in shaping the future of the industry.
Fever Defence uses thermal imaging and a facial detection camera to quickly and accurately test people's temperatures when they enter a building or work site. It is a non-contact device that can measure skin temperature in under a second and is accurate up to plus or minus 0.3 degrees Celsius. If a potential fever-level temperature is detected, Fever Defence alerts the individual with a red and green light stop-go system and an audible notification.
The CIF Construction Safety Summit was a timely event as the construction industry works to navigate the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Employers are looking for ways to put additional safety measures in place to protect their workplaces and their customers against the risk of infection. Fever Defence acts as the first layer of defense for businesses, helping to ensure a safe and healthy working environment.
Technology played a crucial role in the success of the CIF Construction Safety Summit, and we were honoured to be a part of the event. We would like to extend a special thank you to the organisers for their efforts in bringing together experts and showcasing the latest technologies. We look forward to continuing to be a part of the conversation and to sharing more about Fever Defence and its role in helping to keep construction sites safe during these unprecedented times.
