Using Digital Signage for Social Distancing

< Back

Digital signage is extremely versatile. In recent years, it’s become a popular solution in retail environments, but the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic saw companies adapting to use signage not only for advertising products and services, but also for displaying health and safety messages.

The reason? Many businesses opted to install the technology in their workspaces to promote and enforce social distancing. Though government restrictions have eased since, social distancing remains an important practice to minimise the risk of employees catching and spreading the virus to their colleagues.

Not only does digital signage attract the attention of passers-by (which is why it’s become a must-have system in a growing number of retail environments), it can be installed alongside sensors and cameras to help keep your workforce safe.

Social Distancing Detection Systems

With the digital signage system in place to display reminders encouraging employees to maintain distance from their colleagues where possible, our social distancing detection systems add another layer of protection. This technology can be implemented at potential ‘hot spots’ for overcrowding in your office or workplace, and will alert you when those in the camera shot breach social distancing rules repeatedly.

This can help you decide whether to put in place one way systems or similar, and makes it easy to keep your team safe without having to manually watch CCTV feeds all day.

This is just one example of the versatility of digital signage. To find out more about all it can do for your business, contact us today to schedule a call.
