Employment Background Investigations Inc. (EBI) announces the launch of its Workplace Health & Safety Solution, an end-to-end system designed.

FREMONT, CA: Employment Background Investigations Inc. (EBI) is one of the nation’s largest privately-held employee background screening firms, and today announces the launch of its Workplace Health & Safety Solution, an end-to-end system created to meet the safety and health risk requirements for small, mid-size, and large enterprises in the pandemic and beyond.

The secure U.S. cloud-based, personalized platform integrates daily biometric authorization for symptom screening for COVID-19 via a mobile app or a plug and plays no-contact thermal temperature scanning device at workplace entry points. Throughout the Command Center Dashboard, authorized users can track the work locations to ensure safe distancing practices, critical access analytics, manage employee data very securely, and business operations efficiently to immediately identify and address potential outbreaks.

“The pandemic has accelerated the need for powerful, easy-to-use digital information tools for employee to have the confidence to return safely to work and for businesses and universities to reopen under safe operating conditions,” says Rick Kurland, CEO of EBI. “Most importantly, we’ve designed an end-to-end system digital framework that adheres to local and national safety standards and mitigates the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak within your workplace, and the financial impact that is associated with the health and safety of your employees and business.”

The Mobile Employee App offers a simple CDC symptom questionnaire that employees access their mobile device each morning. If the questionnaire results indicate the potential illness, the employee will be instructed to stay at home, and an HR administrator will be notified. If the employee completes the questionnaire, they will be issued a QR code for no-contact Thermal Temperature Scanning at their work facility’s entry. Thermal Temperature Scanning detects symptomatic employees and ensures face mask compliance.

The software driving the Thermal Temperature Technology has been designed and developed in the U.S. and allows for temperature detection in under 3 seconds, with measurement accuracy within 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit. This scanner eliminates the need for an individual to get within 6 feet of someone to take their temperature and possibly be exposed to COVID-19.

All employee data is managed securely through the EBI WHS Command Center that monitors activity at multiple work locations for all facilities’ entrance temperature scanners and provides all employees’ daily CDC Questionnaire results. Through the Command Center Dashboards, authorized users have access to essential analytics and receive critical alerts through text and email notifications.
