MCL Construction continues to monitor developments surrounding COVID-19 and adjust our current health and safety plan accordingly.
As part of our continuing efforts to keep our employees and business partners safe and healthy, the company is enforcing a new policy. Infrared temperature scanning is now required before you enter the building. The technology uses thermal imaging cameras and software to produce instant temperature readings and mask detection.
“Safety is the core of our company culture. These scanners enhance our commitment of keeping our employees and visitors to our office safe,” said MCL Construction founder and President Bob Carlisle.
It is a touchless process. The individual stands in front of the screen to be scanned. If a temperature is above a preset number or they are not wearing a mask, the system will alert the individual with an alarm. Anyone with a temperature higher than the Johns Hopkins recommended temperature guidelines will not be allowed into the building and will be referred to our updated employee protocol. Safety is the number one priority at MCL. It is our responsibility to make sure all our employees work in a safe office and are not a health risk to the sites we work on daily. The thermal scanners will also be used on project job sites.
“We work in a lot of healthcare facilities and we are fortunate to learn from the doctors, nurses, and administration we communicate with daily,” said Carlisle. Taking preventative measures like monitoring our temperature, physical distancing, and wearing a mask in public are crucial to us beating this pandemic.”
In March, MCL formed a COVID-19 task force that meets daily to address updated safety measures in the community, on our job sites, and in the office. This task force will continue to meet daily as we work through the uncertainty of the pandemic all while ensuring quality work for our owner and business partners.
