In an effort to help promote employee health and safety in the workplace, we are excited to offer PIMM Health Check App.
BEIJING (Reuters) June 29, 2020 – Global coronavirus cases exceeded 10 million on Sunday according to a Reuters tally, marking a major milestone in the spread of the respiratory disease that has so far killed almost half a million people in seven months.
The Procuro PIMM Health Check APP provides a non-intrusive way of protecting worker safety in offices, plants, warehouses and retail outlets in light of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Global Pandemic.
The process is simple! The user selects the employee’s name on the Procuro PIMM Health Check APP running on any Apple iOS device.
The user will then capture a thermal temperature scan of the employee’s forehead to record their body temperature and log this in our PIMM Health Check APP.
In addition to the temperature check, a secondary health check allows the employee to place a finger in a Bluetooth enabled Oximeter, which will record their blood oxygen levels. A reading under 95% can be a symptom of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
