According to the ENR article published regarding COVID19 new risk controls on construction sites, “a third party with health experience, such as a nurse or emergency medical technician (EMT), should take a worker’s temperature at the project gate and decide on admittance” says safety director who works on many industrial projects.

Miami Beach is requiring all employees on a daily basis to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the construction site.
How can COVID-19 screening be done onsite?
A qualified and trained EMT can take the employee’s temperature with an infrared thermometer onsite.
Why choose an EMT to do the screening rather than Field Personnel?
- They have experience dealing with sick patients and medical situations
- They will be dedicated to this task and can provide the attention and focus needed to do the job safely and effectively
- The EMT is qualified and trained on medical screenings
- Having an EMT onsite can allow the Field Personnel to continue overseeing and managing the project to avoid delays or other safety accidents that can occur.
Placing an EMT onsite a few hours a day to take employee temperatures and conduct health questionnaires for all personnel onsite can have an impact on the safety on the employees and stop the spread of the virus.
With COVID-19 screening, you will get:
✅ Early detection of COVID-19 symptoms among employees
✅Reduce the COVID19 impact on your job
✅Avoid overwhelming Field Staff with additional duties
✅ Peace of mind
Services TSCSE Offers:
TSCSE can provide EMTs on jobsites that will conduct COVID-19 risk assessment questionnaires for all personnel on the jobsite to evaluate the risk of your current job force. With fever being a key symptom of COVID-19, our EMT’s will make routine observations and take selected temperatures of all employees daily. Temperatures are taken using a “non-touch” infrared light thermometer.
