Internet of Things Inc (CVE:ITT) (OTCMKTS:INOTF), the firm behind the ThermalPass fever detection system, announced an alliance, which will provide workplaces with an end-to-end infection prevention and control (IPAC) solution in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The tech group is joining forces with Get Ready www.getreadyglobal.com and Protect Your Office www.protectyouroffice.com to create a so-called Safe Site Global Association so businesses can reopen offices and other spaces safely, ITT said

It integrates ThermalPass with Get Ready proprietary, cloud-based, infectious disease outbreak management programs, along with Protect Your Office personal protective equipment, safety products and workplace screen and dividers.
"Whether it's retail businesses, office buildings, factories or schools, most employers do not know what to do in order to facilitate a safe return to work," Michael Lende, CEO of Internet of Things said in a statement.
"Organizations require standard operating procedures, policies and training to implement and execute safe practices to mitigate the spread of communicable illnesses."
ThermalPass, which was developed jointly by ITT subsidiary AI Labs Inc and Commersive Solutions Corp, is one of many technologies the Safe Site Global Association uses in its IPAC program.
It consists of 20 thermal medical-grade sensors, which take 400 temperature readings per second without violating social distancing rules.
A major advantage of ThermalPass is its use in high-traffic locations where people can be screened without any effect on their pace of movement, says ITT.
"Safe Site Global is a marriage of resources," said Dr Michael Christian, MD and Medical Advisor of Get Ready. "Our team of medical and emergency experts ensure that our clients meet the relevant and evolving public health prerequisites as they adjust to the "new norm" of safety precautions in the workplace."
