Medical tablets for first responders

Medical Computers For First Responders

We all know of the ongoing pandemic that is currently scarring the nation, but as the pandemic continues on so does the progression of seasons. We are seeing earlier starts to both fire seasons in states like California and Hurricane season on the Atlantic coast. California is currently battling multiple large fires, two of which are now the second and third largest in the state’s history. On the east coast, two hurricanes are forming and expected to make landfall. With a worsening climate, being prepared for longer disaster seasons will be crucial for effective community medical care. To that end, Tangent has developed medical computer tablets that can be used by first responders and medical professionals alike to help disaster relief efforts on multiple fronts.

Medical Computer Tablets For Disaster Relief

Helping people is the top priority of every first responder, doctor, and hospital in the nation. But during wide scale disasters, this priority may be hard to manage. Maintaining the chain of command is essential to organizing aid efforts. With medical tablets from Tangent, this can be accomplished.

Medical tablets from Tangent are fully capable of receiving and sending medical correspondence. This helps ensure that your first responders are capable of receiving new orders, no matter where they are during a fire or hurricane.

Keep Workers Safe With Automation

As the pandemic continues to make its ways through the country, it is more important than ever to keep your workers safe. Workers in factories, food processing plants, refrigerated facilities, and oil rigs all work together in close quarters. This means that the potential for an outbreak is real, and can have lasting effects on your workers and business. Keeping your workers safe is paramount during this time, and one of the best ways to keep them safe is to advance your facilities’ automation efforts.

Automation With Industrial Computers

Automation may seem like a sort of catch-all phrase, but it can have tangible benefits for your facility. With industrial computers, automating your facility doesn’t have to be a headache. Today’s industrial computers are fast, efficient, and easy to use. Take the Rugged Mini E3 industrial computer from Tangent for instance. With 32 gigabytes of RAM, this industrial grade computer is capable of multitasking unlike any other industrial computer. This amount of RAM allows the E3 mini industrial computer to run numerous industrial automation systems simultaneously and without delay.

With an industrial grade computer like the Rugged Mini E3, your facility can run more automated programs with less computers. This allows you to have less workers on the factory floor, and therefore create more social distancing in your facility. Workers stay safe, and the productivity of your facility skyrockets.

Create Worker “Bubbles” With Industrial Computers

With more systems automated, your workers can reorganize their efforts and consolidate tasks. This can allow you to make worker “bubbles,” wherein workers only interact with the same few workers each day. This ensures that if an outbreak does occur at your facility, that it only affects a small number of workers as opposed to all of them. This also allows workers to rethink how they do their job, and find new and creative ways to be productive.

For instance, workers can use time they would otherwise spend going around your facility on their industrial computers. By creating pockets of workers and giving them their tasks via industrial computer, their workload is always present and ready for them.

Do It All With Tangent

One of the easiest ways to keep your industrial workers safe is by keeping them distanced. With industrial computers from Tangent, this is not only achievable, but cost effective. Learn more by contacting Tangent Sales today.

How To Measure Skin Temperatures Quickly

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to screening for symptoms of the virus during this pandemic, there are ways of performing screenings for symptomatic individuals. The NBA is strictly monitoring everyone in their bubble’s daily temperatures to ensure that any outbreak is immediately discovered. While not every store, hospital, and essential business has access to individual temperature monitoring technology for every worker and patron, there are solutions that can help these places screen for virus symptoms. With a Thermal Imaging Kiosk From Tangent, multiple people can be safely and accurately screened with a single device.

Thermal Imaging Kiosk: Safe And Effective

What is a Thermal Imaging Kiosk? A Thermal Imaging Kiosk allows hospitals, stores, and facilities to safely and accurately measure the temperature of anyone entering said place. From workers to patrons, healthcare workers to patients, a Thermal Imaging Kiosk from Tangent can take their skin temperature.

The Thermal Imaging Kiosk works by being placed in the entryway to your facility. From there, the touchless kiosk automatically scans any person in front of it for an elevated skin temperature. In under a second, the Thermal Imaging Kiosk takes the person’s skin temperature and gives the information to both the person, and whoever is tasked in your facility for monitoring the entryway.

Encourage Social Distancing With Temperature Scanner Kiosks

The Thermal Imaging Kiosk is fully touchless, and requires far less cleaning than traditional temperature scanners because of this. What’s more, one Thermal Imaging Kiosk can do the work of thousands of individual temperature tests in one day.

Temperature Scanning Made Easy

If a patron is found to have an elevated skin temperature, the Temperature Scanning Kiosk will trigger a silent or audible alarm (user preference) to alert security or staff of the posed risk. The entrant can then be taken aside for further temperature scanning or simply be asked to leave the premise. With a Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent, workers no longer have to be put at constant risk by manually taking temperatures.

The biggest downside to using handheld temperature scanners is that they require medical staff to stand in close proximity to potentially infected persons. With temperature scanner kiosks, this liability is completely eliminated. Patients or medical staff entering a hospital simply have to approach the kiosk, and with touch-free voice commands have their temperature taken.
Safely And Accurately Measure Temperatures

The AI powered Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent uses the latest in skin temperature thermal imaging technology to get a fast and accurate read on an entrant’s skin temperature. This makes the Temperature Scanning Kiosk the perfect first line of defense against the virus.

AI Powered Mask Detection

We have all seen videos of situations quickly escalating because staff asked a patron to wear a face covering. Even though masks should not be controversial, this is the current state of affairs. With an AI Powered Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent, employees do not have to be put in these aggressive situations.

 

The AI driven Temperature Scanning Kiosk can detect if a person is wearing a mask, and inform the entrant of the mask requirement of your facility if your facility has one. This takes out the human element of this mandate, and can lead to less conflicts overall.

AI Powered, Thermal Imaging, Temperature Scanning Kiosks: Ready For You

The reality of the pandemic is that only by taking every possible precaution, can we get through this. With a Temperature Scanning Kiosk from Tangent, precautions can be taken without shifting the risks to your workers. Contact Tangent sales today for more information on our Thermal Imaging Kiosk.

Preventing Disease Spread In Food Processing Plants

How often should a food processing plant be in the news? Ideally, never. But as the pandemic continues on, food processing plants have come up more and more often in the news as potential hot-spots for infection. While these facilities are crucial to supplying Americans with the food they need, it is nevertheless important to acknowledge that poor working conditions and workplace hazards are a detriment to the branding of any company. Food processing plants are no exception, and preventing disease spread in your food processing plant is crucial to protecting employee lives, keeping the facility running smoothly, and maintaining your brand.

Perform Strict Virus Testing

The easiest solution to preventing an outbreak at your food processing plant is to ensure that one can never start in the first place. Remember, it is always better to be overly cautious now than to be dealing with strikes, plant closures, and lawsuits later. These outcomes could be disastrous for your facility, and preventing them is crucial.

Tyson Foods has implemented a weekly virus testing policy for all of its food processing plant workers. This is a bold step in the right direction. While it may be costly in the short term to perform weekly testing, a full food processing plant closure will be extremely costly in the long term. Keeping workers safe is the same as keeping your plant open during this pandemic.

Increase Safety Measures

While your food processing plant has more than likely already implemented some safety measures, it is time to implement the very extremest of measures. It is not enough for employees to wear masks and be tested regularly, they must also maintain social distance and keep their industrial hygiene at its peak.

Rugged Mini O Industrial Computer From Tangent
Rugged Mini O From Tangent

Industrial hygiene is crucial during this pandemic. Workers should be able to clean their industrial computers regularly. Industrial computers like the Mini O from Tangent are fully waterproof, receiving the highest IP rating (IP69K) for water resistance. Implementing these industrial computers into your facility will allow workers to fully sanitize their industrial computers before and after use. These strict measures can help ensure that asymptomatic workers do not become the point of an outbreak for your food processing plant.

Augment Your Facility To Handle Social Distancing

Your food processing plant may be experiencing some level of social distancing currently, but chances are these measures have resulted in diminished productivity. Simply removing some workers from one area without altering the way your facility is set up is wasting both labor and space.

It may be time to reimagine your food processing plant entirely. With the addition of industrial grade computers, the amount of workers that need to be in one place can be drastically reduced. Small, rugged mini industrial computers from Tangent can be placed in virtually any situation. With extreme water resistance, temperature resistance, and fanless designs, mini industrial computers from Tangent can fit into your food processing plant and augment the way you do business.

Stay Safe With Tangent

Neither your or your workers want an outbreak to occur at your food processing plant. With industrial computers from Tangent, the chances of this occurring can be reduced. Contact Tangent sales today for more information on our lineup of durable and safe industrial computers.
